Covid-19 Rental Assistance Program

Rock Island County Circuit Clerk SealProgram Details

The program is intended to provide housing stability and prevent families and individuals from losing their homes due to the economic hardship caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The program's goal is to assist those facing monetary hardships due to a reduction in their income due to job loss, business income loss, or reduced work hours, thus placing their housing in jeopardy.

Eligible households may receive assistance if there is a demonstrated or imminent need and if program funding is available. An example of imminent need is with the elimination of the additional unemployment benefit of $600 per week, it is expected that households may no longer be able to make their rent or mortgage payment. Assistance will be provided directly to your landlord.
