Illinois Offering Rental Assistance As End Nears For Eviction Moratorium

The state of Illinois is continuing to offer rental assistance as an eviction moratorium draws to an end. The Illinois Rental Payment Program is accepting applications for its current round of assistance until the end of day Sunday. The state has 500-million dollars available, and applications can be submitted online. Governor J.B. Pritzker’s office announced earlier this year that the moratorium would be phased out during the summer and be lifted in August.
