Workshops and affordable housing resources for property owners, renters, and homebuyers will be available at a community "Housing and Resource Fair" on Saturday, May 17.
The event will run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Falconer School, 3020 N. Lamon Ave. Admission is free.
Co-sponsored by Ald. Ray Suarez (31st), the Historic Chicago Bungalow Association, and the Chicago Department of Planning and Development (DPD), the one-day event will feature more than 20 exhibitors, including lenders, housing counselors, government agencies, and community organizations offering a variety of housing programs and services.
"This collaborative effort will provide a convenient opportunity to get answers to housing-related questions and information on a wide-range of housing resources that are available citywide," Ald. Suarez said.
Information will include homebuyer programs, home financing options, foreclosure prevention, and landlord-tenant laws. The fair will also include free workshops on rain barrels and composting.
Residents will have the chance to enter one of four raffles to win an Energy Star refrigerator, a $700 room makeover, $300 in new landscaping, and a rain barrel.
For more information about the fair, call 773-276-9100.
