Cook County COVID-19 Recovery: Rental Assistance Program

Published on August 21, 2020

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.

Applicants must:

  •  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/recovery
