LUCHA is excited to announce our continued partnership with the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) through its Choose To Own (CTO) Homeownership Program. The program assists public housing and Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) tenants in the transition to affordable and sustainable homeownership by applying voucher assistance to a mortgage instead of rent. In addition to financial assistance toward housing costs, the program refers clients to providers such as LUCHA who offer quality, bilingual pre- and post-purchase homebuyer education, credit counseling, legal representation for closing, and other services to guide renters through the homebuying process.
Most recently, LUCHA assisted 30 first-time homebuyers in preparing for purchase and closing on their properties through the CTO Program. With this extended support, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to help more of our neighbors begin building generational wealth in their new homes!
