Housing is something that everyone in Chicago needs. If you are a person with a disability and are low-income, the search for affordable and accessible housing can be a daunting process. One option is the waiting list for housing through the Chicago Housing Authority. Now through November 24, CHA is offering the option to apply for three waitlist lotteries through one registration form. The waiting lists are for:
1. Family Public Housing
2. Housing Choice Voucher (formerly Section 8)
3. Property Rental Assistance
To register for the lotteries, individuals can visit www.thechawaitlist.org or call 312-971-7700. People can also visit Access Living, which has staff on hand to help with the process. For reasonable accommodation questions, call 312-971-7700.
