IL Housing Guide Update

At this time, the IL Housing Guide website is being revamped but is still open for limited access. Also, guides for all four counties are being updated as well, Winnebago and Stephenson County are completed. 

IL Housing Guide is a guided search that connects people to housing resources from rental assistance, to homebuyer support, to legal aid. The site's resources have expanded and there are now resources listed for four Northern Illinois counties: Boone, Ogle, Stephenson, and Winnebago Counties! With a few simple questions, the site will list resources best for the unique situation you are in! To get started go to
