Our Communities

Federal resources in support of affordable housing have continuously declined over the past decade. In response, HACC has taken a new approach to providing affordable housing for the residents of Champaign County.

Serving as a mission-driven real estate developer and property management company, HACC has accomplished the construction of hundreds of new affordable housing units and the rehabilitation of existing housing units with private sector financing.

To meet the requirements of lenders and investors when using private financing, the properties must be owned by independent legal entities. Today, our affordable housing portfolio is comprised of the following properties under affiliated non-profit entities.
