Emergency Rental and Mortgage Assistance Program

IHDA Launches Emergency Rental and Mortgage Assistance Program

The Illinois Housing Development Authority (IHDA) has developed the Emergency Rental Assistance program to support Illinois tenants who are unable to pay for rent due to a COVID-19-related loss of income. The program will provide Illinois renters a $5,000 grant that will be sent to their landlords.

The Emergency Rental Assistance program is expected to reach 30,000 renters that have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic and will run through December 2020, or until the available funds are exhausted, whichever comes first. Applications for this program will be accepted from August 10 to August 21. ​It is advisable to start the application once available on Monday, August 10th at 9 a.m. due to high demand. Only one application per household is allowed and an application is not a guarantee of assistance.

You can learn more about the program and how to apply for rental assistance at  https://era.ihda.org/   and at ema.ihda.org. for mortgage assistance beginning August 24th. If you have any questions, please call (312) 883-2270 or toll-free at (888) 252-1119. For those who are deaf, hard of hearing or speech-impaired, please contact Navicore Solutions for free assistance at (877) 274-4309 (TTY).​
