WTIP Housing Series: The Long-Term Rental Crunch

This series focuses on the local workforce housing crunch facing Cook County. It shares anecdotes of the struggles people face when trying to find a long-term rental in the county, a comparison of the local market with other tourist destinations across the United States, and possible solutions to the local issues involved with finding a house to rent or own in Cook County.

For this series, WTIP interviewed more than a dozen community leaders, elected officials, individuals involved with local real estate and people looking to rent a house in Cook County.

Their stories are shared in three produced features and a “Community Conversations” program that aired live in June 2018.
