Welcome to the Ideas Forum for Plan for Transformation 2.0

With new leadership at both the City of Chicago and the Chicago Housing Authority, CHA is embarking on a recalibration of the original Plan for Transformation. In collaboration with the City of Chicago, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, CHA will explore new tools and strategies for completing initial goals and planning for the Housing Authority’s future role in providing affordable housing options.

As part of this effort, CHA is engaging a broad spectrum of stakeholders in an intense information gathering and input process to identify lessons learned as well as recommendations to help shape the next phase of the Plan. CHA invites you to join the conversation about the next phase of the Plan by submitting comments, feedback, and input here.
