About Us

The Menard County Housing Authority (MCHA) has been serving Menard County, Illinois since 1947 by providing safe, decent and sanitary housing for its low income residents. Since that time, many things have changed but not our commitment to excellence. We continually strive to improve the quality of housing available throughout the county by upgrading and renovating our own rental units or by partnering with private owners to manage theirs.

All of our rental units are restricted for low or very-low income residents, and many units are handicapped-accessible. In addition, MCHA also serves as the management agent for the Affordable Homes program in Menard County.
