This week, President Preckwinkle, the Bureau of Economic Development and the Housing Authority of Cook County (HACC) announced an application deadline extension for the Cook County COVID-19 Recovery Rental Assistance program.
Applications will now be accepted through Monday, August 24, at 4:00 p.m. The decision to extend the program comes after last week’s severe weather that left portions of the County’s residents without power, internet, and other vital services.
- Live in suburban Cook County and rent your home.
- Have past-due status on rental payments starting March 27.
- Not be a recipient of other rental assistance programs.
- Prove household income before March 27 was below the 80th percentile of the Area Median Income (AMI).
Residents can review their eligibility and apply for rental assistance at www.cookcountyil.gov/
