As of August 3, 2020  NCHA has resumed Housing Choice Voucher inspections on a as needed basis.  Any affected voucher holder and landlord will be notified prior to their scheduled appointment and in regard to any follow-ups as needed.  All inspection staff will be following State of Illinois recommended safety procedures including the use of PPE and asks everyone to respect social distancing and mask guidelines.  Thank you for your cooperation as we work together to keep the communities NCHA serves to be safe for our families.



Welcome to the North Chicago Housing Authority. This website is designed to introduce you to the housing authority and the services we provide families and elderly/disabled individuals throughout our community.

Established in 1976, the North Chicago Housing Authority will continue to show determination in meeting the needs of our community. Our Public Housing program currently manages two low-income mid-rise buildings that consist of 150 apartments for income eligible families.

Our Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program administers 471 vouchers. We also operate three other programs in collaboration with other agencies within the community. These programs consist of Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH), Family Unification Program (FUP), and the Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS), program.

We strive to be on the cutting edge for small housing authorities nationwide. We are committed to assisting low and moderate-income families with affordable housing opportunities in vibrant neighborhoods as they strive to achieve self-sufficiency and improve the quality of their lives.

If the information you need is not on this website, please contact us at (847) 785-4300. We consider it an honor and a privilege to serve you.
