The Housing Authority of Cook County is pleased to announce the launch of our new Applicant Portal.
Effective June 27, 2017, all applications for assistance will be accepted electronically. If you have already applied for assistance you can verify if you are still on our waiting list, apply for other open wait lists and update your contact information by creating an account. Paper applications will no longer be accepted.
Housing Choice Voucher (HCV), formerly called “Section 8” – tenant based voucher assistance. The HCV Wait List is currently closed and the HACC is not accepting applications at the moment.
