Live meetings are held at Kingsberry Waffle House in Oak Forest but during Covid-19 Protocol we are doing Zoom Meetings.

21/6-1 The Illinois Rental Payment Program (ILRPP) is an assistance program offered to all eligible Illinois renters impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Tenants whose application is approved will receive a one-time grant of up to $25,000 paid directly to their landlord to cover missed rent payments between June 2020 and prepay payments through August 2021, or until the grant is exhausted, whichever comes first. Both housing providers and tenants participate in the joint application process. ILRPP is funded by the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 and is designed to help tens of thousands of Illinois renters avoid eviction and stay safe and in place during a public health crisis. Please note: an application is not a guarantee of assistance.
