How to Apply


How Do I Apply For Housing Assistance?

We are currently taking applications for our Low-Income Public Housing Programs for persons who are elderly, disabled, families, or displaced by a natural or government action ONLY.

Applications are taken on-line. If you do not have a computer, you may access the website through any computer connection (a friend, family, public libraries, internet cafes, or the Authority’s Main Office).

By submitting your application for housing assistance you are giving your consent for the CCHA to obtain all criminal history records for all household members (18 year of age and older) necessary to determine your eligibility for housing assistance programs administered by the Housing Authority.

Applicants must have an e-mail address to complete the on-line process. Applications will not be accepted without an email address. CCHA is making strides to be “green”. Email will soon be the primary method of contacting applicants. It is very important for applicants to monitor their email account for messages pertaining to housing assistance. If you are a person with disabilities and require an accommodation to apply for our programs, please contact us at (815) 273-7081.
