Stability Vouchers

CHA was awarded specific voucher programs dedicated to helping Chicagoans and families experiencing homelessness have a place of their own. These voucher programs are known as Emergency Housing Vouchers and Housing Stability Vouchers.

CHA Vouchers Help People Escape Homelessness

For these particular voucher programs, CHA works with the Chicago Continuum of Care (CoC), a membership organization made up of agencies and people who work to prevent and end homelessness in Chicago. The Continuum of Care is actively referring people who have interacted with the homeless system and are in need of affordable housing.

We have exceeded the available vouchers for Emergency Housing Vouchers and are actively working with the CoC to identify people for the Housing Stability Voucher program. There is no way to sign up for a waitlist for this resource.

In need of assistance?

The Continuum of Care is actively referring people who have interacted with the homeless system. There is no way to sign up for a waitlist for this resource. If you need a place to sleep tonight or are seeking homelessness prevention resources, call 3-1-1 to speak to the Homeless Prevention Call Center or contact the Coordinated Entry Call Center. Please note that completing a Coordinated Entry housing assessment may or may not lead to a housing option and does not solve your immediate housing crisis.

Property Owners

Hundreds of individuals and families are actively looking to rent units — don't miss out!

Are you ready to fill your available units?

  1. Learn about the leasing process and working with CHA. Watch the on-demand Property Owner Briefing webinar to find out about the many benefits of the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program.
  2. Advertise your available units. Like all HCV participant families, EHV and HSV families will search for housing in the private market and will contact the property owner/manager if they are interested in an available unit. CHA partners with AffordableHousing.com to connect voucher holders with potential units.

Property owner or unit postings on AffordableHousing.com are not pre-screened, pre-approved, or endorsed by CHA. You can also connect directly with EHV and HSV families through Chicago Rents, a program of All Chicago that connects landlords to tenants through multiple housing subsidy programs. Chicago Rents maintains a database of housing units.

To add your units to Chicago Rents’ database, complete a unit availability survey. EHV and HSV families receive personalized housing location assistance from Chicago Rents, a program of All Chicago that connects landlords to tenants through multiple housing subsidy programs.
