Class S

Cook County’s Section 8 portfolio is the largest stock of affordable housing outside of public housing, and over 15,000 units of Section 8 housing will be eligible to opt out of the program as their contracts expire in the next few years. Many of these units are high risk of opting out because they are located in areas with strong housing markets.

CRN worked with the Cook County Assessor to create Class S, an incentive program that rewards owners in high-risk areas who elect to stay in the Section 8 program for an extended period of time.
