Illinois Homeowner Assistance Fund (ILHAF)

IHDA has opened a new round of the Illinois Homeowner Assistance Fund (ILHAF) to help homeowners who continue to be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. And, in response to the trends they have identified during the first round of applications, IHDA is pleased to announce that they have doubled the maximum ILHAF grant amount to $60,000 from $30,000. This grant can cover overdue mortgage payments, property taxes, insurance, and association fees.

To date, ILHAF has provided $32.5 million to help 2,346 Illinois homeowners avoid foreclosure. Doubling their assistance amount to $60,000 will allow them to help even more homeowners remain in their homes as they navigate inflation fears, changing market conditions, and continue to support the state’s overall recovery from the pandemic.

Households who need help with past-due mortgage payments and related expenses can apply for free assistance at until 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2023.
