WNIJ’s Juanpablo Ramirez-Franco reports:
[edited to reflect deadline extension]
This week, Governor Pritzker and the IDHA announced that the deadline to apply for rental assistance has been extended by one week to August 28th.
The decision comes after an inland hurricane swept through much of northern Illinois and left some 750,000 Illinoisans without power. Kristin Faust, IHDA Executive Director says ,”it’s important we provide additional time to file and complete application for assistance.” She continued, “I am pleased to extend the deadline as there were many renters and landlords without power for nearly a week, which negatively impacted their ability to apply to the Emergency Rental Assistance program.”
