Housing Authority of Champaign County

Providing rental assistance to low-income, elderly and disabled individuals and families

About Us

Under the guidance of the Executive Director the HACC provides housing for low-income families and individuals. Families and individuals who meet income requirements are selected in accordance with the HACC’s Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy and the Housing Act of 1939.  The HACC does not discriminate against any applicant for housing because of race, color, religion, sex or national origin.

Many of the HACC properties are handicapped-accessible with fully accessible units located in several communities.  The HACC also makes reasonable accommodations for a wide range of disabilities through the installation of items such as hearing-impaired smoke detectors and wheelchair ramps.  In addition, the Administration Building is equipped with a TTY telephone.

To ensure that our housing meets the Uniform Physical Condition Standards set by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) each community is inspected annually by representatives of the Authority and HUD.  HUD scores our properties in 5 areas: site, building exterior, building systems, common areas and units.  This score is combined with Management Operations, Financial Condition and Capital Fund Program scores to form the Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) score.  Since HUD began rating Housing Authorities in 1991, the HACC has consistently earned the rating of “Standard” or “High Performer”.  This rating reflects continued effort on the part of the HACC to maintain high standards in the management and maintenance of its properties. 

The HACC has expanded its scope of tenant services far beyond housing to include job skills training, in-home education programs and youth programs.  Our goal is to support families and individuals as they strive to gain the education or skills to allow them to become tax-paying citizens.
