Don’t miss this opportunity to change your address and your quality of life
The goal of the HACC’s Community Choice Program (CCP) is to help families with vouchers to explore all your housing options. A housing counselor will walk you through the process of identifying your needs and your wants in terms of housing and community services and then help you to locate housing in opportunity areas in suburban Cook County that fit the bill.
Opportunity areas are communities that have been identified as high-performing communities. In general, they have less violent crime, a good mix of people from different backgrounds, better schools and better community services. Moving to an opportunity area is a chance to find something new and wonderful. It is a chance to find a place where you can put down roots and begin to focus on the things in life that matter—your child’s education, starting a new career or another life’s ambition.
Families are assigned a housing counselor who assists them before, during and after the move to an opportunity area. Other program benefits include:
- Personalized action plan
- Housing search assistance
- Referrals to available units
- Resource materials
- Workshops on landlord/tenant rights and responsibilities
There are some cities and towns in suburban Cook County where the entire community is considered an opportunity area.
