Using funds allocated by Attorney General Madigan’s office after a 2012 national foreclosure settlement, CCLBA built partnerships with community based developers to rehab these homes and get them into the hands of homebuyers, helping to make blocks whole again, put people to work, and put homes back onto the tax rolls.

Elected officials and civic and community partners of CCLBA will unite to celebrate the organization’s 200th rehabbed home for a ribbon cutting and tour.

WHEN:Monday, Nov. 20th from 11am to 11:30am
