ILRPP is an emergency rental assistance program designed to support households that are unable to pay rent due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Eligible households may receive up to 15 months of assistance. The coverage period is June 2020 through August 2021, if necessary. The maximum grant amount is $25,000. The grant will be paid to the landlord in the form of a check.
Generally speaking, for a household to be eligible, they must have experienced a financial hardship due to COVID-19, be behind on their rent, and be under the income limit. If you are unsure of the household’s income, you can still apply. The tenant will have to submit income documentation in their section of the application.
The application process begins with you, the landlord. After completing your sections, your tenant will receive an email with instructions on how to complete their section. An application will not be considered complete until both parties (landlord and tenant) submit their information.
