New HCV Programs and Procedures

LEASE EFFECTIVE DATES

Effective October 2019: the Chicago Housing Authority will now allow the lease effective date to be on any day of the month, except the 1st.

MOVING INTO A UNIT PRIOR TO A PASSED INSPECTION 

In an effort to expedite the lease up process in the HCV Program, CHA is implementing a demonstration program that allows a voucher holder to move in to a unit prior to receiving a passed HQS inspection as long as there are no emergency or life-threatening fail items.

This demonstration program will be implemented on October 1, 2019 and applies to any initial inspections that occur on or after that date.

PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE CHA ASKING TO PARTICIPATE IN THE DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM. WHEN AN INSPECTION MEETS THE CRITERIA, CHA  WILL INITIATE THE PROCESS AND CONTACT THE PROPERTY OWNER AND VOUCHER HOLDER.
