About the PAC

The Pratt-Ashland Cooperative (PAC) was established in 1995 to allow low- to moderate- income families the opportunity of owning their home. We are a 22-unit apartment building located in Rogers Park.

building is cooperatively owned and we all have our own apartments. Membership in the Pratt-Ashland Co-op is an extremely affordable way to be a home owner: you buy in at a share price ranging from approximately $2,500 - $5,000 and then you pay a monthly housing charge that covers all building maintenance and your portion of the mortgage on the whole building. Combine that with convenient access to CTA red line, Clark bus, Metra, and THE BEACH, and it’s a great setup.

Pratt-Ashland is an affordable limited equity cooperative. The residents collectively have ownership and control building over their building. Intro to Cooperative class available to all new applicants.

6 Steps to PAC Membership

Becoming a member of the PAC is not difficult, but not a quick process either. We want to be sure that you understand what cooperative housing entails, and that you are a good fit with our community. That is why we have this membership process.

Introductory Class.
After you view the available unit and are interested in more information about cooperative housing, we will schedule a two hour course on the PAC. You will receive a course completion certificate, which you can use at any future date as proof of taking the course, even if you decide to wait on your housing decision.

Background and Credit Checks.
Our management company will facilitate this check and approve your status for membership. The cost for a credit check is $50 (single) and $90 for a family.

Board Review.
Following steps one and two, the board will meet in order to approve your status for membership.

Home Visit from Board.
At least two members of the board will visit your current residence. This is a scheduled "surprise visit." You will know generally when they will arrive, but not specifically the date and time.

Interview with Current Membership.
This is your interview with current members. We will ask you questions and then circulate your responses with all PAC members.

Membership Vote.
Every unit gets one vote on your membership into the PAC. Most likely if you've made it this far then things are looking good for PAC membership.
Congratulations! Completing these steps will make you a PAC member. The only thing left is to determine a move in date and to pay your first membership fee into the community. Welcome to the PAC!
