As source of income is a protected class in Chicago, housing providers should use the normal channels to market their property to HCV families, including:
- Signage on/around the unit
- Online classified ad sites
- Apartment guides
- Real estate agents
- Advertisements in area newspapers
To help connect families to housing opportunities, any housing provider can also list their available units on AffordableHousing.com. Here, they can create a free account, list an available rental property (including property details and pictures) and even review and upload comparable unit data. However, units and housing providers listed on this site are not pre-screened by CHA and do not carry CHA’s endorsement.
