For Property Owners

Chicago Low-Income Housing Trust Fund seeks to fund rental subsidies in properties throughout the City of Chicago that will provide safe and well-maintained housing to Chicago’s low-income citizens. It is property owners that apply to the Trust Fund to participate in the Rental Subsidy or Multi-year Affordability through Upfront Investment (MAUI) programs. Property owners then lease units to income-qualified households.

Open Enrollment (Closed)

CLIHTF currently has 200 subsidies available through open enrollment. Visit the RSP Application Process tab HERE, for more information.

Current Property Owners

If you are a property owner currently participating in the Rental Subsidy Program, you can access the following on this site.

Online Owner Portal

As part of your agreement, you are required to submit certain forms (Exhibits) both when you complete your agreement and throughout the year. These Exhibits are part of an online submission process which eliminates 95% of the paperwork that was required in the past.

Subsidy Payment Release Dates

Please be informed that Trust Fund Subsidy Payments are scheduled for release weekly on Fridays.  In the event that a holiday should fall of a Friday, payments will be scheduled for release on Thursday.
