Affordable housing bid for feasibility study hits a wall
WOODSTOCK – A fledgling affordable housing group that created some controversy because it is led by the McHenry County Board chairman’s son is examining its options after losing a two-year fight for access to federal money.
County staff informed the McHenry County Attainable Housing Corp. last month that it no longer will hold $13,000 it had asked for in 2011 for a feasibility study on the need for senior housing it wants to build in McHenry. The corporation has been unable to get certification as a community housing development organization, which is required to get Department of Housing and Urban Development funds disbursed by the County Board.
Without that designation, called a “chodo” in housing parlance, the corporation can’t have the money, county Planning and Development Director Dennis Sandquist said. The $13,000 likely will go out along with the next round of HUD funding, about $350,000, to qualified agencies.
