Hip Hop 4 Housing
Hip Hop 4 Housing fundraiser was designed to generate funds for SAGA’s Home Sharing program, due to
Chicago’s Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection enforced an ordinance regulating short-term rentals, in May of 2016. It also required all hosts to register their units for rent so that the city could track the number of units rented short-term. The premise is to keep commercial renters from listing multiple units in residential buildings turning them into hotels. The fine for violators is $100,000.
SAGAesc was encouraged to discontinue its House Sharing program. Check out what the program was about as described by Rhonda Drew, Chanell McMilllian and Dawn Haley. An interview with Santita Jackson of WVON Radio 1690.
