Assistance from Illinois Section 8 Housing Choice voucher program

The Illinois Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program can provide low income Illinois residents with help for rent and housing needs. Find who to contact to apply for the Section 8 program, and how to get housing assistance.

Section 8 housing vouchers will in effect limit the amount of rent that an individual needs to pay for their housing. The amount that a client needs to pay will be based on what their total household income is, as well as the number of individuals that reside in the household. Illinois wants to do whatever they can to try to limit evictions and ideally eliminate homelessness, and section 8 housing vouchers are one of the best resources to do this.

The federal government HUD organization provides money to Illinois. The state then works with the public housing authorities and agencies below, and those agencies both accept applications and can also refer families to all housing programs that may be able to help them in their time of need. Call a HUD approved agency below to apply for section 8 vouchers in Illinois.
