The Housing Authority of Cook County (HACC) cut the ribbon on renovations at Richard Flowers Homes, which is part of a 1,225-unit, $200 million HACC rehab project. The project, spanning multiple years and several Chicago suburbs, “is the largest preservation effort the suburbs have seen in decades,” said Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle in a Chicago Tribune article. HACC used the RAD program to help finance the extensive renovations.
“This is really about community,” said Richard Monocchio, HACC executive director. “We are preserving the existing housing that we have so that families and seniors will have a decent, safe place to live.”
