Help for Illinois Families
The state of Illinois is leveraging federal funds to help Illinois families access and afford home energy assistance and other essential services. The State’s Fiscal Year 2023 (FY23) budget provides support for eligible Illinoisans seeking assistance to cover costs of utility bills, rent, temporary shelter, food, and other household necessities. The Help Illinois Families initiative has an online Request for Services form to make it easier and faster for individuals and families to remotely request assistance. Completion of the form does not guarantee assistance; however, filling out the form is the first step in a process that will be completed by local agencies throughout the state. Applications will be reviewed on a first come, first served basis and are subject to funding availability. Visit helpillinoisfamiles.com for more information.
