Get Our Alderfolk to Pass: The Public Health and Housing COVID-19 Emergency Ordinance (PHO)
CREATE A PREFERENCE – that moves medically-vulnerable individuals and families from congregate living facilities, which have been rendered unsafe by the coronavirus pandemic into one of the identified 1,250 vacant Chicago Housing Authority public housing units as identified via FOIA - CHA records request.
The ordinance requires that entities receiving City Council funding both meet the national standard of a 97% occupancy rate for their affordable housing stock across their portfolio.
It will require the CHA to maintain an average 60-day vacant unit turn-around time to re-lease a subsidized apartment after someone moves out.
It creates some public policy infrastructure that will be in place not just for COVID-19 but afterwards to protect medically vulnerable people as well as the rest of the population from a contagious disease.
People are still dying from Covid-19, especially black/ brown communities, the elderly population, frontline workers, those in congregate settings including the carceral system, homeless and nursing homes. We need to take action now.
