Utilizing data-driven comprehensive planning, the Strategic Planning & Reporting (SPAR) department at IHDA works with communities to develop a place-based approach to expanding housing affordability. The SPAR team identifies and cultivates partnerships with local stakeholders - advocates, city officials, developers, and residents, to name a few - to implement local housing strategies to grow healthy and sustainable communities across Illinois.

Join co-hosts University of Illinois Extension and Rural Partners as representatives from SPAR provide an overview of emerging demographic and real estate market trends, outline organizational goals and objectives, and discuss how local leaders can get involved.

Presenter: Traci Sanders, Deputy Director of Strategic Planning and Reporting, Illinois Housing Development Authority (IHDA)
