Chicago Low-Income Housing Trust Fund


The Chicago Low-Income Housing Trust Fund (CLIHTF) works with landlords to provide rental subsidies to Chicago residents with incomes not exceeding 35 percent of area median income. The rental assistance is provided directly to landlords.

The CLIHTF was created by City Council ordinance on June 28, 1989, and was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization on Feb. 27, 1990. A Mayoral-appointed Board of Directors supervises the business of the Trust Fund. The Board of Directors is comprised of 15 individuals who live in the City of Chicago, have diverse backgrounds, and represent non-profit organizations, private corporations, and City government.
