(310 ILCS 65/2) (from Ch. 67 1/2, par. 1252)
    Sec. 2. Legislative findings and declarations. It is hereby found and declared that an acute shortage of affordable housing exists in the State of Illinois; and that this crisis has been exacerbated by a sharp reduction in federal funding for affordable housing, by the potential prepayment of subsidized federal mortgages, and by an inability on the part of local government to meet this need. New State resources must therefore be directed to alleviate the shortage of affordable housing. It is further intended that limited new State resources be allocated in a manner that maximizes collaboration among federal, State and local agencies as well as the private sector.
