CHA Community Alliance

Community Alliance Logos

The Chicago Housing Authority Community Alliance is a partnership with Erie Neighborhood House and Spanish Coalition for Housing to increase awareness of CHA’s programs and activities across the Chicagoland area.

Each month, our partners host a series of workshops specifically tailored toward seniors, property managers/owners, individuals interested in learning more about Scattered Sites program and Section 3 businesses and/or Job seekers and CHA applicants.  The focus of these workshops is to educate the community on the various CHA programs and activities and to provide updates on industry-related topics.

You may sign up for as many workshops as you wish.  However, registration is on a “first-come, first-served” basis. Once the workshop has reached capacity, registration will be closed. 

CHA is excited to offer these free education workshops and we hope to see you there!                 

Erie Neighborhood House and Spanish Coalition for Housing, in addition to various CHA workshops, also offer programs for Early Childhood Education and other youth programming, citizenship & immigration, foreclosure prevention, energy assistance and much, much more.  Click on one of the links below to learn more.
