HUD Gets Grant to Aid in Foreclosure Crisis
The city has outlined a number of approaches to re-developing the vacant or foreclosed properties–including rehabbing, demolition, or converting some properties to affordable rentals. The 25 neighborhoods that will receive funds include Austin, Fuller Park, North Lawndale, West Garfield Park and Woodlawn. Ellen Sahli runs Chicago's housing department and tells us about the city's plans.
