Single-Family Rehabilitation Program

North West Housing Partnership (NWHP) acquires homes in Bellwood, Berwyn, Forest Park, Maywood and Oak Park to rehab and affordably sell to qualified home buyers. Each potential buyer will work with the West Cook Housing Collaborative to be pre-qualified and to also receive $10,000 in down payment assistance. In addition, a buyer will need to attend housing counseling and receive a certificate. This can be done through NWHP or the West Cook Housing Collaborative. This program is provided in partnership with the IFF. For further information please contact Paula Bush via email or call (847) 969-0561. In addition to this program, NWHP buys foreclosed homes in various northwest suburban communities. They are then rehabbed and sold at affordable prices. For more information, call the office at 847-969-0561.
