Contracting Opportunities

Welcome to the home page for the Chicago Housing Authority’s Department of Procurement and Contracts! 


Compliance Requirements

As a HUD-funded Illinois corporation, CHA mandates that all contractors meet federal requirements to ensure workers, public housing residents and certain minority, women or disadvantaged business enterprises benefit from the use of federal funds. 


Section 3 Business Concerns

CHA’s Self-Certified Section 3 Business Concern Registry is available for your business to self-certify your company, if you meet the requirements outlined below.  If you are looking to contract with a Section 3 Business Concern, you can search those self-certified businesses through the same website.


Developer Financing

Developers and property owners can request several types of financing from CHA.


Project Based Vouchers

Project-based assistance is different in that you must live in a specific building in order to receive help in paying your rent. Initially you must live in the designated building to receive rental assistance, but after one year of occupancy, you may be eligible to receive a tenant-based voucher if funding is available.
