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.

Determination of exempt local governments.
(a) Beginning October 1, 2004, the Illinois Housing Development Authority
shall determine which local governments are exempt and not exempt from the
operation of this
Act based on an identification of the total number of year-round housing units
in the most
recent data from the U.S. Census Bureau for each local government within the State and by an
inventory of owner-occupied and rental affordable housing units, as defined in this
Act, for each local government from the U.S. Census Bureau and other relevant
(b) The Illinois Housing Development Authority shall make this determination
(i) totaling the number of owner-occupied housing
units in each local government that are affordable to households with a gross household income that is less than 80% of the median household income within the county or primary metropolitan statistical area;
(ii) totaling the number of rental units in each
local government that are affordable to households with a gross household income that is less than 60% of the median household income within the county or primary metropolitan statistical area;
(iii) adding the number of owner-occupied and rental
units for each local government from items (i) and (ii); and
(iv) dividing the sum of (iii) above by the total
number of year-round housing units in the local government as contained in the latest U.S. Census Bureau and multiplying the result by 100 to determine the percentage of affordable housing units within the jurisdiction of the local government.
(c) Beginning on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 98th General Assembly, the Illinois Housing Development Authority
shall publish a list of exempt and non-exempt local
governments and the data that it
used to calculate its determination at least once every 5 years. The data shall be shown for each local
government in the State and for the State as a whole. Upon publishing a list of exempt and non-exempt local governments, the Illinois Housing Development Authority shall notify a local government that it is not exempt from the operation of this Act and provide to it the data used to calculate its determination.
(d) A local government or developer of affordable housing may appeal the
determination of the Illinois Housing Development Authority as to whether the
local government is exempt or non-exempt under this Act in connection with an
under Section 30 of this Act.
