Emergency Housing Vouchers (EHVs)

May 13, 2021 - A limited number of Emergency Housing Vouchers (EHVs) will be available starting July 1, 2021.

To be eligible for an EHV, applicants must meet income restrictions and fall into one of four eligibility categories: (1) homeless (as defined by law under the McKinney-Vento Act), (2) at risk of homelessness, (3) fleeing or attempting to flee, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, or human trafficking, or (4) recently homeless.

CHA is currently working with the Chicago Continuum of Care to develop an applicant screening and prioritization process. More information on how to apply for an EHV will be posted on this page, as well as our partners’ websites in the coming weeks: All Chicago Making Homelessness HistoryThe Network, and the Corporation for Supportive Housing.
