Welcome to the Owner Excellence Program

The Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program successfully provides low-income families affordable housing opportunities in the private market due, in large part, to a strong partnership with its participating Property Owners/Managers.

In an effort to recognize and reward those Property Owners/Managers who have exceptional property management skills and show a high level of dedication to both their property and their tenants, CHA has developed the Owner Excellence Program which offers numerous benefits to those who qualify, including:

  • Extended office hours
  • Members-only Business Center
  • Dedicated staff to provide individualized service and support
  • Exclusive inspections schedule for initial and annual inspections

Plus, if your unit qualifies, you could take advantage of extended benefits, including:

  • Biennial inspections
  • Self-certification of minor Housing Quality Standards (HQS) fail items
  • Vacancy payments
  • HQS inspections results valid for 90 days
