Crain’s Chicago Business reported yesterday that the Chicago Housing Authority is issuing “supervouchers” that enable low-income residents to rent in some of the city’s priciest apartment buildings. Supervoucher recipients are currently renting, for example, at 500 Lake Shore Drive and Aqua.
There are important public policy and resource allocation questions to be considered. But, this being Chicago, the more interesting question is who the supervoucher recipients are and whether they’re clouted up and by whom.
Anyone have any answers?
