Housing authority seeking state help for $11.6M Rock Island project

ROCK ISLAND — Plans are advancing for a proposed $11.6 million redevelopment project to convert the obsolete Lincoln Homes public housing property into a single-family row house community of 46 homes.

Community Housing Services, the non-profit affiliate of Rock Island Housing, has applied to the Illinois Housing Development Authority for low income housing tax credits to fund the demolition and redevelopment of the site.

“The redevelopment of Lincoln Homes has been an important goal for us for a long time,” said Susan Anderson, CHS CEO and executive director of RIHA. “The competition for funding will be fierce, but we are excited and hopeful that the project will be approved.”
