Searching for Housing

Finding a place to live is hard, which is why our housing counselors are here. Housing Choice Voucher holders looking to relocate to Chicago's mobility areas should consider partnering with Housing Choice Partners to find a place to call home.

You do not need to enroll in the Mobility Program to benefit from CHA's Exception Payment Standards (up to 150% of your voucher value).


Anyone looking to rent in a CHA Mobility Area is eligible for the Exception Payment Standard, based on local housing costs. 

Type in the address you want to move to see if you qualify for CHA's Exception Payment Standard in the map below.
