Statement from Mayor Rahm Emanuel on the Restoration of State Funding for Emergency and Transitional Housing

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

I applaud the Illinois General Assembly for restoring critical funding to the Emergency and Transitional Housing program that supports homeless services and shelters. With winter approaching, these funds will allow us to continue to respond to the needs of homeless Chicagoans and provide essential emergency services to keep them safe. I want to commend State Representative Sara Feigenholtz and State Senator Heather Steans for their leadership on this critical issue.
