    Hi Kisha and others-- Grove Apartments will not be available till fall of 2014. I'm sorry for the delayed construction. In the meantime, you are still eligible to put your name on the other regional waiting lists if they interest you. All Oak Park Housing Authority waiting list families are permitted to live in any of the developments across the region.

    Thanks!
