 All applicants must keep a current address on file.  MCHA will occassionally mail documents or letters to a family that require their response in order to remain on the waiting list.  If you fail to respond to a MCHA mailing, you will be removed from the waiting list.  By using our Edit Contact Information tool, families will be able to update their contact information for all waiting lists other than GreenTrees and SilverTrees.  After entering your full name and social security number, you will be able to edit your email, phone number, and address.  Any other changes, such as a name change or adding/removing family members from your pre-application, must still be done in writing by completing a Change of Information form.

The McHenry County Housing Authority over the years has purchased and rehabilitated 23, 3-bedroom, single family homes and duplex units, throughout McHenry County. The homes are rented to McHenry County low-income families who qualify for a 3-bedroom unit under the Public Housing Low Rent Assistance Program.

Tenants for this program are selected from a Public Housing waiting list. Qualifying applicants must live or work in McHenry County or be put on a secondary Public Housing Low Rent Assistance Program waiting list.   Income limits for the Public Housing Low Rent Assistance Program are the same as the limits for the Section 8 Rental Assistance Program.
