Graphic: Affordable housing in McHenry County

Published: Sunday, July 20, 2014 1:00 a.m. CST

As part of the 2003 Affordable Housing Planning and Appeal Act, the state wants municipalities with at least 1,000 people to have at least 10 percent of their housing units deemed "affordable."

Presently, 11 municipalities in McHenry County do not meet the mark, including Cary, Algonquin, Lakewood and Johnsburg. They have to submit a plan to the Illinois Housing Development Authority by July 2015 showing how they will increase their amount of affordable housing units.
