Round X: $123 Million in Funding For Permanent Supportive Housing Announced

Impact Behavioral Health Partners (Impact) is one of 14 organizations which will receive funding to construct or rehab affordable housing buildings. Impact will receive $2.8 Million to rehab a 6-unit building in Skokie. Round X is part of Illinois Housing Development Authority’s Permanent Supportive Housing Program, designed for individuals at risk of homelessness, those living with disabilities, or other vulnerable populations. 

All of the 14 building developments will contain supportive services for residents to maintain their independence, their stability, and their health.  

“Everyone deserves a safe and stable place to call home,” said Governor JB Pritzker. “That’s why Illinois is making historic investments in homelessness prevention and housing services. By financing 14 supportive housing developments statewide, we are strengthening our permanent housing infrastructure to help vulnerable communities access the holistic resources they need.” 

In July 2023, Governor Pritzker signed a bill to move Illinois to “functional zero.” Functional zero means more people are securing housing than are experiencing homelessness. 

“Governor Pritzker tasked the Illinois Housing Development Authority, along with our partner state agencies, to help achieve functional zero for homelessness across the state,” said IHDA Executive Director Kristin Faust. “We did not view this as a challenge, but an opportunity to do our part to increase housing for some of Illinois’ most vulnerable. With limited resources, we strategically leveraged various funding streams to award the single largest permanent supportive housing round in our history. These developments will be transformative for the residents by providing stable, affordable housing with support and additional resources for growth and independence.” 

In 2021, The Reva and David Logan Foundation Impact acquired this six-unit building for Impact to manage. 

“Our board, staff, and our participants are grateful to Governor Pritzker and to IHDA for this investment in permanent supportive housing,” stated Patti Capouch, Executive Director. “This vital funding allows Impact to move current participants into their own units, providing each with safe, beautiful, and dignified housing.”
