Cinnaire to Invest $39M in Illinois Housing Developments

Cinnaire, a nonprofit community development organization, recently closed two Low-Income Housing Tax Credit funds totaling $193 million. These will support the creation of preservation of 1,849 affordable homes across 22 projects in nine states.

One of the funds, Cinnaire’s Midwest Fund 40, raised $120 million in committed capital for a multi-investors LIHTC fund dedicated to 1,165 affordable homes across 15 new construction and rehabilitation projects in four Midwest states.

Cinnaire plans to invest $39 million of these funds in three new Illinois housing developments, including two in the Chicago area, reported the Chicago Business Journal. The Chicago-area developments will be in the Austin neighborhood and in Libertyville, with a third located in Macoupin County near St. Louis.

“2023 has been a remarkable year with our capital raising team and partners coming together to raise $417 million in equity investments to support 3,313 affordable homes,” said Josh Ghena, Cinnaire Senior Vice President, Equity Business Funding.
