State Resources Include Mortgage Assistance, Data

THE ILLINOIS Housing Development Authority (IHDA) is currently taking applications from homeowners who have been hit by the economy. The initiative, named Illinois Hardest Hit Program began last year. The program offers mortgage assistance to those who are struggling with income loss due to unemployment or underemployment. Visit www.illinoishardesthit.org for more information.

GOVERNOR PATRICK Quinn recently signed a new executive order to further increase transparency and accountability in government by establishing a new state Open Operating Standard. The order encourages State agencies and local governments across Illinois to increase the amount of raw data they share with each other, businesses, academic institutions, and the general public. The State of Illinois' Open Data site, Data.Illinois.Gov, is a searchable clearinghouse of information from State agencies that is helping inform residents about the operation of State government and encouraging the creative use of State information. The site now contains more than 6,400 data sets.
