  • What is the Housing Choice Voucher Program?
    A federally funded program administered by Chicago Housing Authority to provide housing assistance to eligible families. The HCV Program provides a rental subsidy for a portion of the tenant’s monthly rent. Voucher families have the choice to move to any community within the city of Chicago. The landlord is paid directly.
  • What is the Mobility Program?
    The Mobility Program is a CHA program administered by Housing Choice Partners. The Mobility Program works to provide HCV families with expanded housing choices. Through education and empowerment, families are able to locate and consider the best neighborhoods to meet their family’s needs.
  • What are the benefits of renting to a HCP Mobility participant?
    1. The landlord is guaranteed rent each month. If the tenant loses all or a portion of income, CHA will adjust the tenant rent portion to ensure landlords receive the full monthly rent amount. 2. Most mobility participants are employed and come with a rental resume to support their credit background checks. 3. Mobility participants receive financial assistance to help with the security deposit or move in fees. 4. Mobility participants attend a workshop where they are educated on Tenant’s Rights and Responsibilities, Family Obligations, Financial Management and Home Maintenance Skills. 5. Participants are assigned a counselor to assist during the entire leasing process. 6. Counselors may assist to address delays and submitting rental market analysis to ensure requested rents are within market.
  • How do I know my unit is CHA approved and how do I start the CHA leasing process?
    Finding your potential voucher participant will be the first step in this process. The potential tenant will have a Request for Tenancy Approval (moving papers) packet that you will need to complete and submit to CHA to start the leasing process. Your unit must pass a Housing Quality Standards inspection by a Certified HQS Inspector prior to move in.
  • Who do I contact when I have available units or if I decide to purchase more properties?
