Privacy/Terms of Use
The Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) is a public housing agency based in Chicago, Illinois. Our web site is an information and communication technology that assists vendors in meeting their Section 3 hiring requirements, and allowing Section 3 individuals to apply for open positions on CHA contracts. Section 3 is required under 24 CFR 75 for all HUD financed projects, providing employment and economic opportunities available to low-income residents. Prior to and in conjunction with the Contractor’s commencement, or any of its subcontractors’ commencement of work or services relating to any CHA contract or award, the CHA will provide such parties with access to its Online Hiring System. This system will be used for employers and employees looking to fill vacant positions, available under CHA’s Section 3 program. In accordance with the Voluntary Compliance Agreement (VCA) between HUD and CHA, this database is a required hiring tool for each Contractor with a need to hire Section 3 individuals. CHA is required to build, maintain and expand this database of Section 3 residents and their job qualification information. The database is searchable and accessible by the public, including persons who seek to register in the database and potential employers and business concerns that are seeking to hire. However, no private information beyond the name, job qualifications, and experience will be displayed publicly, except the contact information specified by the person. Section 3 job applicants must register and apply for open positions through this system.

This database includes CHA residents, other public housing residents, Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) participants, participants of HUD Youthbuild programs within the Chicago metropolitan area, and all other section 3 residents.

Any User’s access to the Online Hiring System shall be subject to and governed by the CHA’s Terms of Use as may be posted, published or otherwise made available by the CHA through the Online Hiring System. Each User understands and acknowledges that its use of the Online Compliance System is subject to applicable CHA contract terms, policies, administrative procedures and governing federal, state and local laws and regulations, including, without limitation, the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act, (15 U.S.C. § 7001, et seq.) and the Illinois Electronic Commerce Security Act (5 ILCS 175/1 101).
