COVID-19 (CORONA VIRUS) | Important Updates
We hope this message finds you well. The North Chicago Housing Authority remains committed to creating quality living environments as a foundation for individuals to achieve their full potential. Due to increasing concerns surrounding the possible spread of COVID-19 both globally and domestically, we believe it is in the best interest of the vulnerable populations we serve to temporarily close our offices until further notice.
Community events, inspections, briefings, and activities have been postponed until we know more about COVID-19. Although our offices will be closed, we will continue to accept vital documents via email, fax or dropbox (located outside our main office). To help prevent the spread of germs, we strongly encourage these documents to be submitted electronically.
NCHA’s leadership team understands that these changes may present an inconvenience for the public however, the health and safety of our clients and the community are of the utmost importance to our agency’s mission.
Over the next several weeks, we will continue to monitor federal, state and local ordinances surrounding COVID-19 and communicate any needed changes appropriately.
If you have any additional questions or concerns regarding our response to COVID-19, please contact our Office at (847) 785-4300.
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.
