Cha got over 35,000 empty unit’s that they continue to accept funds for. Cha needs to do their jobs and house people. There are too many people in the shelters and on the streets for cha to be doing this. I was told they will reopen the waiting lists this year. That’s why they doing a update. People if your on the list update your name please.

They also got HUD on their backs and cha suppose to be doing away with the 1/3rd which is good. We need more low income apts.

I don’t care what day it is Chicago isn’t safe to be doing much of anything anymore.

The attack against African Americans began with the displacement of public housing residents and wholesale demolition of public housing high rise buildings and now is focused on school closing and firing black middle class school teachers.

The crime is so bad now because they dispersed all those people and the crime followed. I didn’t realize how segregated Chicago, IL was until I moved to Minneapolis, MN. I should have never came back to Chicago. Chicago has the most corrupt politicians ever. The city is fallen apart by all the gun violence we have been having lately. The Chicago Housing Authority tore down all those projects and displaced all those people thinking they were going to get the Olympics but didn’t. So now instead of having crime in one area it’s all over the city now. God don’t like ugly and he ain’t too fond of pretty. The city unlike Minneapolis do not take care of it’s people when we need it. The cost of living keep going up yet the crime isn’t going down. The transit authority(CTA) are raising their prices and service sucks. The segregation is crazy. It’s like it’s 1955 here in Chicago. I think the city would be even better if we could all come together and live. Chicago is not only racially segregated but economically segregated as well. I’m moving back to Minnesota where all races and creeds live together. I want to move back therer because I know if I need help they will help me. I like the cost of living there also. The schools are great and the crime is low.

The financial state of Illinois is horrible and they need to maximize every tax dollar. Helping the less fortunite is important, and should always be high on the agenda. The issue that stems from affordable is the abuse of it by citizens who should not be on assistance programs. Ive been a big supportor for the less fortunate folks and personally donate money and time to helping them. The problem that needs to be addressed first is how to rid the program of scammers. The current system doesn’t work and is abused by opportunistic individuals who don’t care about others. They need to revamp the entire program and rid it of all the scammers before they can implement new programs or start old ones back up. The people who require assistnce and affordable housing a great people.
