Cook County Treasurer's Office - 10/8/2020
More than 38,000 homes in Cook County could end up being sold because of unpaid property taxes, a large majority in African American communities. The Cook County treasurer is trying to prevent that, WLS/Channel 7 reports.
The Treasurer has launched a new initiative called "Black Houses Matter" with the goal of locating Black homeowners and informing them of their property tax status so their homes don't end up being sold. "We need to keep people in their homes," Pappas said. "If you don't have a home, you don't have a life."
