Governor Pritzker Rental Relief Program Updates
ERA Update: IHDA experienced a significant email delivery issue that recently impacted our ability to communicate with Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) applicants. We have worked diligently to resolve the issue and have begun resending application status emails to applicants.
IHDA received more than 80,000 applications for ERA funds. To date, more than 38,000 have been approved for funding. Once completed, 40,000 Illinois tenants and landlords will be allocated more than $200 million in assistance paid directly to landlords to assist tenants impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Please click here for a list of FAQs.
Eviction Moratorium Update: On November 13, 2020, Governor Pritzker issued a COVID-19-related Executive Order intended to protect tenants who submit a signed declaration form from being evicted or removed from their residence through December 12, 2020. In order to be protected, each adult listed in the lease or other rental agreement, must provide the signed declaration form to their landlord stating they have experienced an economic hardship due to COVID-19 and will earn no more than $99,000 in Calendar Year 2020 ($198,000 if filing a joint tax return).
Please find a list of Frequently Asked Questions here.
In addition to providing your landlord with a signed declaration, you should retain a copy of the signed declaration(s) for your records. If you need legal assistance, you may wish to reach out to legal resource agencies listed here (en español).
