Vera Yates housing complex's waiting list opened for first time since 2009
The Housing Authority of Cook County (HACC) recently opened the waiting list for its Vera Yates Family Housing complex in Ford Heights for the first time since 2009.
“We have worked extremely hard on rehabilitating and upgrading these units so that families have a place to call home," HACC Executive Director Richard Monocchio said. “With federal and state cuts slashing our housing budgets and social programs on every level, we still managed to move our renovation plans forward to help the homeless, seniors, children and the disabled."
More than 400 people showed up for the announcement at the affordable-housing complex, 1055 Berkeley, to fill out and submit applications, as well as tour the rehabilitated apartments.
The Vera Yates Family Housing site consists of a two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom units, totaling 36 two-story units overall. The site was built in 1967.
