DuPage Housing Authority (DHA) and Kendall Housing Authority (KHA) To Open Illinois Rental Housing Support Program (RHSP) Waitlist

Effective September 7, 2022 at 10 AM, the waitlist for vacant units with the Illinois Rental Housing Support Program (RHSP) will open. This is a small state-funded program where contracts are with landlords who own units.  The household’s rent is subsidized but they would live in a specific unit (similar to a project-based voucher) when a vacancy occurs.  

Please note there are 70 units for DuPage Housing Authority and 50 units for Kendall Housing Authority so participation in this program is limited. 

For the DuPage public notice of this opportunity with instructions on how to apply, please follow this link.
