Billion dollars of rental assistance.
Here is an except from WIFR. Hopefully this will help.
Any renter who is behind on payments and experienced financial hardship due to the pandemic is eligible to apply for up to $25,000 in rental relief, which will be paid directly to their housing provider or landlord. Applications are available at illinoishousinghelp.org.
To qualify, you must have a household income of no more than 80% of the area median income. In Cook County, that equates to $52,200 a year for a single renter, and $75,500 per year for a family of four. For a full breakdown of income limits by family size and county, click here.
