CCHA Social Media Update

This month marks three years that Carroll County Housing Authority (CCHA) has been on Facebook! In early 2020, we made the decision to expand our marketing and communication efforts. Our goal is to utilize the Facebook page as an additional way to connect with our current residents, relatives and friends of residents, spread awareness of our facilities to attract future residents, and engage/inform members of our community.

We are excited to report that in 2022 our Facebook page reached 11,922 people. In addition, our Facebook page currently has 545 followers, in which, 76 were gained in 2022.

You can assist us in our continued efforts by following our Facebook page CCHASavannaIL, and sharing it with your connections. Your help in growing our page would be much appreciated.  If you have news or photos you would like us to consider sharing on Facebook, please send it to christineamelaas@gmail.com.   Along with your help, we are looking forward to sharing our CCHA events, photos, ideas and memories to make 2023 our best year yet on Facebook! 

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 2023, please bring it to the CCHA office and we will make a copy for your file.  Also, you should receive a letter 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 by January 16, 2023, please call our CCHA office immediately.  In addition, please either call or stop by the CCHA office 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 re-examinations must be completed and forwarded to the Chicago HUD office by February 28, 2023.  Thus, if your re-examination is not completed by this date your Lease will not be renewed.
