Gov. Pat Quinn has announced $15 million in state funding for a program that works to move people with disabilities out of institutions and into their own homes.

"Home First Illinois" will develop about 100 units of accessible, affordable housing over the next three years.

Quinn said he would like to see the project expanded beyond the Chicago area.
