Rent Assistance Programs

Home » Illinois Rent Assistance » Chicago

We provide a directory of agencies that provide rental assistance to residents. We do not directly provide aid ourselves, but provide local resources for you to find. Most major U.S. cities including Chicago, Illinois, offer some type of state of federally subsidized Rental Assistance Programs and/or emergency financial assistance for low income persons in need. There are also thousands of local non-profit organizations that offer help paying rent along with providing housing assistance. We currently have listed all of the financial Rental Assistance programs we could find in Chicago. We constantly are finding new sources for rent assistance, sign-up here to receive an email alert as soon as we locate any new rental assistance programs in Chicago.
