Public Housing Lease

CHA’s Public Housing Lease is the contract between CHA and each public housing tenant. The lease is signed by CHA and the household at the beginning of tenancy and includes how much the monthly rent is, when it is due, what will happen if residents don’t pay rent, the duration of the lease, how many occupants may live in the unit, policies regarding apartment inspection, requests to modify an apartment on account of a disability and all other essential information for a successful tenancy in public housing.

CHA encourages residents to read the lease and familiarize themselves with the information it contains.
