Illinois Affordable

Housing Forum


The Illinois Housing Council (IHC) is proud to present the 2022 Illinois Affordable Housing Forum!

IHC is a non-profit, state-wide membership organization, created to promote the stabilization of communities through the production and preservation of affordable housing. IHC serves as a resource for information, education, and networking opportunities for our members from across all sectors of the industry. On an annual basis IHC hosts a statewide affordable housing conference, the Illinois Affordable Housing Forum. The Forum provides an opportunity for hundreds of industry leaders from across Illinois to come together to share ideas, discuss best practices and make new connections.
Building off the success of past conferences and adapting to the changing environment, in 2022 IHC will be presenting a hybrid conference with educational sessions streamed online and one day of in-person activities and networking available for a limited number of attendees. Virtual sessions will be held for all attendees March 22-24, 2022. In-person conference activities will take place at the Chicago Cultural Center on March 31st with plenary sessions and special speaker presentations live-streamed online for attendees that are more comfortable with a fully virtual conference.

We hope you will join us for the 2022 Illinois Affordable Housing Forum and celebrate IHC’s 20th anniversary at the Forum with an extra special Reception and Annual Meeting.
