We face difficult times in Illinois: political gridlock, no state budget for 14 months, cuts to schools and social services, and decades of corruption. Lake County United continues to seek ways to move ahead. About Us provides you what we do, who we are and useful tools to improve life in our county. Issues & Victories focuses on our major issues of housing, mental health and education. The sidebar highlights events and recent news. Get to know us and support us.
On Sunday, January 15, 2017 at 2:00pm, Lake County United will celebrate the completion of Fairhaven Crossing, 40 affordable housing units in Mundelein. This event will take place at the Santa Maria del Popolo Parish Center, 151 N. Lincoln Ave., Mundelein, IL.
This calls for celebration not only because 40 more families will no longer have to pay 50-70% of their income on housing or worry about being evicted, but this is also a way to improve the economy.
This development benefited from the Illinois Affordable Housing Tax Credits. Over the last 15 years the state invested $7 million in state tax credits resulting in the construction or rehabilitation of 18,000 housing units creating 25,000 jobs and leveraging $3.3 billion in private investment.
