Fox River Valley Initiative Wins $19M to build Affordable Housing for Families and people with Mental or Developmental Disabilities

Leaders from the Fox River Valley Initiative organized over the past eight months building power within the Elgin, IL community by going door-to-door and having conversations with over 200 residents, meeting with the city council members and finally delivering 200 people to the Planning & Zoning Meeting to push the recommendation for the council through.
 
The Elgin council unanimously voted for the $19M dollar Affordable Housing Project, which will build 48 units of affordable housing for families (2/3 bdrms) with 10 studio units for people with a mental or developmental disability and an onsite case manager. Overall this project will create permanent supportive affordable housing for 100 men, women, children and people with disabilities.
