Message from the Executive Director
Lily L. Walton, Housing Authority of Champaign County's Executive Director
The Housing Authority of Champaign County (HACC) is working to change the face of public housing in Champaign County, IL. As one of the leading housing authorities in the state, and one of only 39 Moving to Work Agencies in the country, our Agency provides housing and housing-related services, for over 13,000 citizens of Champaign County.
We provide safe, decent, and sanitary housing for the most vulnerable members of our community. HACC also provides so much more than housing. We offer individuals, families, and senior citizens a foundation from which to build successful lives and inspiring investment in self and community through our housing opportunities and programs. We are there for those who need support, and for those who wish to transform their future.
Our team consists of dedicated management and housing professionals. With the continued leadership and assistance from our Board of Commissioners, we remain confident and excited about the opportunities we are able to offer to the community. HACC continues to play a vital role in maintaining the health of our community by building strong public and private partnerships, maintaining a high standard of property maintenance, and helping low-income families move toward economic self-sufficiency.
I believe our future success depends on our willingness to offer our very best to the public as professionals who can demonstrate that they care about people and the community in which they live, work, and play! Although we have challenges, we have a much brighter future. We must all come together - residents, staff, governments, businesses, partners, developers, and other stakeholders in our mission/commitment to serve the Champaign-Urbana community with housing opportunities and options.
At HACC, we are committed to "Service Above All Else", and we believe it shows in everything we do. We look forward to continuing to serve the community and help each resident thrive.
