Housing Authority Of Champaign County

Champaign, Illinois

The Housing Authority of Champaign County has an essential mission: “Create quality living environments as a foundation for individuals to achieve their full potential”. Since 1943, HACC provided housing assistance to the residents of Champaign County utilizing traditional Public Housing and Section 8 Housing Assistance funded by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

In 2010, HACC  was awarded the designation of “Moving to Work”.  MTW allows HACC to design and test innovative, local strategies for providing low-income families with affordable housing and a path to economic independence.

Today’s affordable housing crisis demands prompt action and thoughtful policy innovation. As an MTW designated Housing Authority, HACC can tailor programs to best meet community needs and quickly react to changes in the economy that impact the local housing market.

In 2017, the Housing Authority of Champaign County completed plans to convert the last remaining public housing community to private ownership under the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) Program. The exit from the Public Housing Program redefines how we will deliver housing assistance in the future. A visioning process resulted in rebranding the agency to focus on “Growing and Moving Forward Together”.

Earlier today, HACC hosted an Affordable Housing Panel Discussion on the Barriers of Affordable Housing. The overarching theme of this panel is to investigate the role of regulatory barriers—federal, state, and local policies that dictate how and where housing can be developed and play in limiting the supply of affordable housing. Our panelists included the University of Illinois’ Associate Professor Dr. Andrew J. Greenlee, Housing Action Illinois Executive Director Sharon Legenza, Center IL Land Bank Authority Executive Director Mike Davis, IHDA Director of Asset Management Timothy Veenstra, City of Urbana Manager Grant Management Division Sheila Dodd, and Habitat of Champaign Executive Director Chad Hoffman. This panel was moderated by our COO Tiffany A. Gonzalez. Thanks to all the panelists for their valuable contributions towards affordable housing.
