Housing assistance in Illinois.

In addition to the number housing assistance programs listed throughout this site for Illinois and the counties in the state, additional resources are provided statewide by the Illinois Department of Human Services. The focus is on homeless prevention. So qualified families or individuals facing a crisis may be able to qualify for grants to pay their rent and/or utility bills. While even more limited, there may occasionally be money available for a partial mortgage payment. The primary programs and agencies by county and town are listed below.

The funding is distributed on an annual basis to the agencies. Federal government and state of Illinois funds are used to run the programs. The amount provided will change from year to year, and the demand for housing assistance is very high. That means that only a small percentage of applicants will be able to qualify and there are a number of conditions that will need to be met by applicants.

Any funds paid out will for the prevention of homelessness and will be used to stabilize families. Both arrearage and current expenses can be paid. Only those Illinois residents facing imminent eviction, foreclosure and who are on the verge of homelessness may qualify.

In addition to any funding provided, applicants will need to participate in a number of case management service. This will include help with securing affordable housing, employment services, and financial literacy. Those supportive services include Housing Location/Inspection, Counseling, Follow-up, and Outreach.
