Special to suffredin.org

 

The Housing Authority of Cook County (HACC) will be opening site-based wait lists for one and two bedroom project-based voucher (PBV) units at the Meadowview Apartments located at 12500 Fairview in Blue Island IL. The PBV Program is a rental assistance program where the resident pays 30% of his/her income towards the rent to the owner and the HACC subsidizes the remainder.

To be eligible for the Meadowview Apartments PBV units, applicant’s total household income may not exceed the very low income limit (50% AMI), which is $31,200 for a 1 person household;

$35,650 for a 2 person household; $40,100 for a 3 person household; and $44,550 for a 4 person household.

Priority preference will be given to applicants who are currently on the HACC’s Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) wait list. Preferences may also be given to families who are literally homeless; who are Veterans; who are disabled; or who are victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking (referred to as VAWA collectively). Applicants claiming a preference must be able to demonstrate they qualify for the preference when requested. Preferences are assigned a point value and applied cumulatively before the time/date of application.

Applications will be available beginning on Thursday, April 9, 2020 at 10:00am. To apply, applicants need to log onto the HACC’s website at www.thehacc.organd then click on the link “See Our Open Wait Lists” on the HACC’s home page. Applications must be submitted electronically through the website; no other form of application will be accepted. The wait list will close at 4:00pm on Tuesday, April 14, 2020.

If you need assistance or require a reasonable accommodation, please send an email to pbvwaitlist@thehacc.org, with Meadowview Reasonable Accommodation as the subject.
