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. 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. 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. 

Please register online at more information, please contact Katie Buitrago at or 312-368-0310. 

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