As a result of the foreclosure crisis and increasing demand for rental housing throughout the Chicagoland region, many more single-family homes are finding their way into the rental market. For many investors and municipalities in the region, managing single-family rental options on a large scale is a first-time effort with many unanswered questions.
Municipalities and investors are invited to a discussion on how to ensure this growing number of single family rental homes continue to be an answer, not a burden, for municipalities and investors. We are pleased to announce that the keynote speaker will be Alan Mallach, a renowned expert on vacant buildings and affordable housing at the Brookings Institution and the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. The Metropolitan Planning Council will release a white paper cataloging municipal and investor strategies for managing this new and growing segment of our region’s housing stock.

This event is co-hosted by RHOPI, HOPI, and CMAP’s Housing Committee, and is made possible by The Chicago Community Trust.
