Annual Lease Re-Examinations

With the new year upon us, the Annual Lease Re-examinations will be fast approaching in February. In the meantime, if you receive a letter from the SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION indicating your income for 2020, please bring it to the CCHA office and we will make a copy for your file. Also, you will receive a letter during the first week in January from our office regarding the required information needed to complete your re-examination. If you do not receive the letter, please call our CCHA office. In addition, please contact our office by January 31st to schedule your re-examination appointment.

Please be sure that all applicable forms are completed PRIOR to your appointment. It is especially important that the “Banking Verification” form be taken to your banking institution a few weeks prior to your appointment to be completed, as a few local banks have to forward the paperwork to their office headquarters, which are in a different state, to be completed. As an important reminder, ALL TENANT RE-EXAMINATIONS MUST BE COMPLETED AND FORWARDED TO THE CHICAGO HUD OFFICE BY FEBRUARY 28, 2019. Consequently, if your annual re-examination is NOT completed by this date your Lease WILL NOT BE RENEWED.

Flower Bouquet Deliveries

River Valley Designs (located in downtown Savanna, IL) teamed up with a few local citizens to sponsor flower bouquets for the residents in the local nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and independent living facilities. On December 20, 2019, flower bouquets were delivered to each of our Mest Manor, and Maple Lane residents. What a fantastic way for our CCHA residents to begin their Christmas holiday. The flower bouquets were absolutely gorgeous, and were very much appreciated by all!
