CEDA’s Housing Program—funded by local, state, and federal organizations and partners—is a comprehensive housing counseling program focused on helping families remain in or obtain affordable housing.
CEDA works collectively with lenders to work out payment plans for those seeking mortgage delinquency assistance. The Housing Program also works with over 100 landlords throughout suburban Cook County to place extremely low income families in temporary and affordable housing. Each year CEDA provides counseling services to over 1,500 families and individuals.
All families and individuals are eligible for personalized counseling services. A housing counselor will be assigned to each household to help assess client situation and determine housing services need. Short-term rental assistance may be provided, pending funding availability and client eligibility.
