Determine Your Eligibility for Rental Assistance
The Housing Choice Voucher Waiting list will open 2/15/18 until further notice. Applications are accepted online. To qualify all households must meet income requirements. Qualified applicants will be selected via random lottery. Income limits are available at https://www.huduser.gov/portal/datasets/il.html
Eligibility is determined by a household’s gross annual income and is different in each county. Once you have reached the top of the waiting list, you will be sent a letter requesting additional information and requesting that you update information previously sent to our office if necessary. Your eligibility will be determined at that time. After all requested paperwork is submitted to the office, you will be sent a letter inviting you to attend a briefing.
NOTE: Even if you are renting from a Landlord who accepts a voucher, you will NOT have preference over other applicants. We assist applicants based on the date and time the application was received in our office.
