Housing Authority of Champaign County

General Information

The Housing Authority of Champaign County (HACC) joined the MTW demonstration in October of 2010 and serves the county of Champaign, Illinois, a largely rural county with an urban center defined by the twin cities of Urbana and Champaign. HACC has been providing affordable housing in central Illinois since 1939. The PHA is located approximately 135 miles south of Chicago, 124 miles west of Indianapolis, and 178 miles north of St. Louis.

HACC is continuing to work towards its long term goal of developing quality affordable housing communities and providing opportunity and support to maximize individual potential, while sustaining long term financial viability. HACC’s mission is to provide a quality living environment as a foundation for individuals to achieve their full potential.

As part of a rebranding, HACC is focused on the following over-arching goal of “Growing and Moving Forward Together”:

  • Growing housing options to meet the ever-increasing demand for affordable housing throughout Champaign County; and
  • Moving Forward Together with residents and the communities HACC serves, opening doors to support their success.

HACC currently administers approximately 2,300 Housing Choice Voucher units and 10 units of local, non-traditional housing.

MTW Status

HACC was selected as an MTW agency through a competition held in 2009 as a part of HUD's 2009 budget appropriation (Section 236, title II, division I) and signed the standard agreement on October 17, 2010, which ran through its 2018 fiscal year. As a result of Congress passing the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016, HACC’s MTW Agreement was modified and extended to the end of its Fiscal Year 2028.
