"Launched by Mayor Richard M. Daley in September of 2000, the Historic Chicago Bungalow Initiative is designed to foster an appreciation of the Chicago Bungalow as a distinctive housing type, encourage sympathetic rehabilitation of Chicago bungalows, and assist bungalow owners with adapting their homes to current needs, which in turn helps to strengthen Chicago bungalow neighborhoods.
The Historic Chicago Bungalow Association is the non profit organization that administers the Initiative. The program offers a variety of financial resources, from grants to loans, and technical resources, from special permit assistance to "how-to" seminars. Certifying your bungalow with the Historic Chicago Bungalow Association is the first step in accessing these financial incentives and benefits." -Historic Chicago Bungalow Association
