The Housing Authority of Cook County (HACC) will be accepting applications for its site‐based wait list for studio, one bedroom, and two bedroom project‐based voucher (PBV) units at the Country Club Hills Wellness Center (CCHWC) located at 4411 W. Gatling Blvd in Country Club Hills IL 60478. The PBV Program is a rental assistance program where the resident pays 30% of his/her income towards the rent and the HACC subsidizes the remainder of the rent to the owner.
The CCHWC is a permanent supportive housing community serving the homeless. To be eligible for the CCHWC, applicants MUST meet the federal definition of homeless under the HEARTH Act, which can be found at www.cchwellnesscenter.org. Homeless status must be verified with supporting documentation at the time of application and at the time of admission.
Homeless applicants who are currently on any of the HACC’s other wait lists for housing will receive a preference over all other applicants. Additionally, applicants who are chronically homeless, meaning applicants who have experienced homelessness for at least twelve consecutive months or who have experienced at least four episodes of homelessness in the last three years and have a disabling condition, will receive a preference over other homeless applicants.
Applications and homeless verification forms will be available for download beginning Monday, June 29, 2015 at 10:00am on the HACC website at www.thehacc.org and the Country Club Hills Wellness Center website at www.cchwellnesscenter.org. Completed applications and homeless verification forms with supporting documentation must be mailed to the following address only any time after 10:00am on June 29th :
