Illinois Offers New Web Site for Renters

For Illinois residents who are looking to rent for the first time, or who are planning on moving into a new rented residence soon, a group of state agencies has started ILHousingsearch.org, a free, bilingual Web site that aims to help people find housing that suits their needs and financial capacities.

The Illinois Housing Development Authority (IHDA), Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS), Illinois Department of Human Services (DHS) and Illinois Department on Aging have all partnered to offer this site, which was launched earlier this week.
