Message from the CEO

At the Housing Authority of Elgin we are committed to providing the best affordable housing for individuals and families in Elgin and surrounding Kane county communities.

Creating and championing affordable housing in a real estate economic crisis is a herculean task, but one HAE has accepted and embraced.

Whether through real estate development ventures, acquisition, management, or Family Self Sufficiency initiatives, HAE is committed to providing a quality experience while being serviced in our program.

In December 2016, we celebrated the agency’s 50th Anniversary.   We celebrated past commissioners including the late Robert Gilliam and Jesse Jones, who were instrumental in the transformation of the agency.

Our Central Park Towers redevelopment project was award-winning and cutting edge and is considered a model project under HUD’s RAD program initiative.

In closing, we value our customers, partners, landlords, community stakeholders and staff. As an affordable housing provider, we know that it takes a concerted effort on behalf of all stakeholders to build vibrant communities where families can enjoy a high quality of life.
