Access West Cook

846 Bellwood Avenue, Bellwood, Illinois 60104

Access West Cook is scattered site housing located in the western suburbs of Cook County, including Bellwood, Berwyn, Forest Park, and Maywood. It is a mix of one and two bedroom units, some new construction and some substantial rehabilitation. The housing is privately owned and operated. The HACC provides rental assistance through its Project-based Voucher Program. Residents pay 30% of their income towards rent and the HACC subsidizes the remainder of the rent to the owner. To be eligible for Access West Cook, the head of the household, co-head, or spouse must have a verifiable disability. Additionally the household income cannot exceed 50% Area Median Income (AMI) based on the number of people residing in the unit. Some units are restricted to households earning up to 30% Area Median Income (AMI). The HACC will determine eligibility for the PBV Program and the owner will determine suitability for tenancy.

23 foreclosed properties in Bellwood, Berwyn, Forest Park, and Maywood. 50 units of supportive rental housing for households with disabilities through the Home First Initiative.

Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)

Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.

Access West Cook is managed by Housing Authority of Cook County.
