Housing Services

Within our housing services, PACE provides:

  • low-cost housing options
  • subsidized housing application assistance
  • home modification resources
  • access to an accessible housing list for apartments in Champaign County
  • advocacy for reasonable accommodations/modifications in housing
  • information and referral to local shelters/community supports for people experiencing homelessness

Rent/Utility Assistance Process and Documentation Needed:

  • PACE staff can make a referral to our partner agency for rent/utility expense assistance for consumers once per year.
  • The maximum amount we can refer for is $250-$300.
  • Our partner agency requires that they pay the final portion of a bill. So, if consumers need more than $300 of assistance, they must pay the additional amount first and provide documentation of that payment.
  • To complete a referral, our staff need a copy of the current least [for rent assistance], a copy of the final bill to be paid, information about the circumstances of the need, and general consumer information to document the service.
