Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

(from Ch. 67 1/2, par. 24)
Management and operation of housing projects.
It is hereby declared to be the policy of this State that each housing
authority shall manage and operate its housing projects in an efficient
manner so as to enable it to fix the rentals for dwellings at the lowest
possible rates consistent with its providing decent, safe and sanitary
and affordable dwellings, and that no Housing Authority shall construct
or operate any project for profit, or as a source of revenue to a city,
village, incorporated town or county. To this end an Authority shall fix
the rentals for dwellings in its projects at no higher rates than it shall
find to be necessary in order to produce revenues which (together with all
other available moneys, revenues, income and receipts of the Authority from
whatever sources derived) will be sufficient (a) to pay, as the same
becomes due, the principal and interest on the bonds of the Authority; (b)
to meet and provide for the cost of maintaining and operating the projects
(including the cost of any insurance on the projects or bonds issued
therefor) and the administrative expenses of the Authority; (c) to create
(during not less than the ten years immediately succeeding its issuance of
any bonds) a reserve sufficient to meet the large principal and interest
payments which will be due on bonds in any 2 consecutive years
thereafter, and to maintain a reserve; and (d) to create a reasonable
reserve solely from any contributions or grants to the Authority from the
federal government, the State, or any political subdivision of the State
for the purpose of meeting the cost of maintaining and operating the
project and of paying the principal and interest on its bonds.
The management of low-rent public housing projects financed and developed
under the U.S. Housing Act of 1937, as now or hereafter amended, shall be
in accordance with the provisions of that Act. The provisions of this Section 24 shall not apply to any project undertaken pursuant to the additional powers conferred in Section 8.2 upon housing authorities in any municipality or county having a population in excess of 1,000,000.
