Fiscal Impact

There is no fiscal impact on the General Fund.



The Development Customer Services Department administers the Multi-family Housing Incentives Program, which was established by Ordinance in 1984. The program is open to multi-family buildings with four or more units. The program has two major purposes: (1) to upgrade the physical conditions of multi-family buildings; and (2) to expand the housing choices of renters to encourage diversity. The program has three different types of assistance: (1) Grants of up to $10,000 for building or unit improvements; (2) Rental Reimbursement payments for vacant units certified by the Housing and CDBG Programs Division and the Oak Park Regional Housing Center as market-ready within a participating building; and (3) Marketing Services whereby the Oak Park Regional Housing Center affirmatively markets their units.


On December 12, 2022, the Village issued a Request for Applications to all owners of multi-family buildings to apply for the grants and/or Marketing Services Agreements of the program. On April 25, 2023, the Housing Programs Advisory Committee (HPAC) reviewed the submitted applications.


Attached to the resolution is an agreement with appendices.



The Board may choose to not adopt the Resolution.
