Illinois is offering more than 300-million-dollars in assistance for homeowners who have fallen behind on their monthly housing payments due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Illinois Homeowner Assistance Fund provides up to 30-thousand-dollars to each eligible applicant to cover housing costs, including past due mortgage payments, property taxes, and property insurance. Homeowners can apply for the program online. Applications will be accepted through the end of this month.
