Register For Workshops (Participant)

HCV PARTICIPANT WORKSHOPS

Each quarter, the Chicago Housing Authority’s Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program hosts a series of workshops specifically tailored toward owners, property managers and participants. The focus of these workshops is to educate them on the HCV program, and to provide updates on industry-related topics so that they all have an understanding of program operations, and participants can enjoy a high quality of life.

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

CHA’s HCV program is excited to offer educational workshops for HCV participants. We hope to see you there!
