DEVLOPER INFO: CCICS
Christian County Integrated Community Services (CCICS), an Illinois 501(c)(3) organization, was formed by the Housing Authority of Christian County to address the changing environment in public housing funding. CCICS is now a separate entity from the Housing Authority and its mission is to set the standard for excellence in providing affordable, decent, safe, and sanitary housing to people who experience barriers to housing because of income, disability, or special needs.
The project consists of the rehab of two buildings located in Taylorville, IL – Hershey Tower (79 units) and Senior Village (60 units). Both projects were formally public housing and were converted to LIHTC units through the RAD program, thus presenting the units as affordable housing. The units are aimed for households who are at 30%, 50%, and 60% AMI. The buildings will have upgraded amenity features such as security cameras at all building entrances to enhance community safety. They will have communal space for social events, including a community room, library, and an outdoor patio. On-site laundry facilities, property management office and parking spaces will be available at both locations. Units will be equipped with energy star stoves and refrigerators, and individually controlled electric HVAC systems.
