Housing program combines public, private sectors

CHICAGO "Really... the whole idea of this is to re-build the soul of the city," said Daley.

The Find Your Place in Chicago (a href=http://www.findyourplaceinchicago.org target="_blank">findyourplaceinchicago.org) program is a partnership of public and private sectors. It provides a package of financial incentives to help buyers save thousands of dollars on the purchase of a new home.

About 200 homes with prices from $150,000 to $450,000 are being built across the city. The communities are mostly being built on former CHA housing sites.
