Dear Friend,

Illinois’ eviction moratorium is scheduled to expire on Aug. 31, meaning evictions can begin again in the state.

I want you to know there is still help available.

If you’re a renter having trouble paying your rent, utilities, or other housing costs – or if you’re a landlord trying to stay afloat with tenants in this situation – help may be available. State and local programs are distributing billions of dollars in rental assistance to help renters stay housed during the pandemic.

Visit the CFPB’s Rental Assistance Finder to find out what this means for you and what you can do.  The CFPB’s site also includes resources to help renters and landlords understand other resources to help navigate various financial hardships related to the pandemic.

If you have any questions or need help accessing these resources, call (708) 848-2002 or email me at
