About Us

The Quad Cities Housing Council (QCHC) is charged with promoting the coordination and building the capacity of housing development throughout the Quad Cities by: focusing funders' resources, coordinating funding requests, marketing housing agencies to larger foundations and maximizing the housing dollars coming into the area. The QCHC serves as the resource development arm of the Quad Cities Housing Cluster. As the local Housing Trust Fund, QCHC can serve bi-state entities.

The Quad Cities Housing Cluster (Cluster) is a consortium of bi-state not-for-profit and for-profit housing service providers and developers, lenders, funders, local governments and members of the housing industry. Cluster members work collaboratively to address the overall housing needs and opportunities of the Quad Cities’ communities. Such collaborative efforts are evident as the Cluster members:

  • share information about housing programs,

  • serve as an advocacy group in educating local communities and states on and about housing needs and activities,

  • serve as a conduit in developing strategies for coordinating and sharing resources that address housing needs and opportunities in the Quad Cities.

The communities of the Quad Cities benefit from the economic development that affordable housing provides. New and rehabbed homes expand a community’s tax base. An adequate supply of affordable housing can enhance a business’ decision to locate new jobs in the area. And finally, when a household pays less for the roof over their head they have more monies available to purchase the items we all want under that roof.
