CHR_logoThe Central Housing Registry (CHR) maintains a centralized waiting list for most social housing providers in Windsor and Essex County and determines eligibility for rent-geared-to-income housing.  This is a free service and anyone seeking subsidized housing in Windsor and Essex County may apply.

Housing Information Services participates on the Central Housing Registry Advisory Committee providing housing related input, liaison, advocacy and communication on behalf of the community regarding social housing access.  This maximizes the intended benefit of the rent-geared-to-income waiting list system.
