49th Ward Update
February 19, 2021

Hello neighbors,

I want to thank all of our neighbors for doing what we do best over this last week - stepping up to help one another. The large amounts of snow that we received in such a short period of time caused problems with street and sidewalk access as well as garbage disposal. Volunteers in our 49th Ward Shovel Squad and residents all over the ward helped neighbors to clear sidewalks, alleys and connect people with resources that they needed. Thank you for being a good neighbor!

I want to say thank you to the 49th Ward Team, Leslie, Tiffany, Torrence, Gina, Grayson and Jackie and a very special thank you to Dan Murphy who really puts the SUPER in Ward Superintendent for your dedication, creativity and hard work this week in serving our residents.

Last Saturday, we worked with Howard Brown Health, local community organizations, essential businesses and senior citizen buildings to vaccinate 400+ people! Thank you to the Chicago Park District for hosting and being such a good partner. We are working with other health partners to schedule more pop-up events so that we can get as many of our residents vaccinated as possible. If you're looking to get vaccinated, please check for the most recent information on our website. The inclement weather around the country caused disruptions in vaccine delivery and the City and other vaccinators had to reschedule appointments. Hopefully we'll be back on track this week. 

Next week, we will hold the February City Council meeting, please tune in to watch live Wednesday, Feb. 24 at 10am and sign up for public comment here. 

Lastly, be on the look out for a paper newsletter in your mail over the next week that contains some resources and information you may want to keep handy!

Stay safe, and take care,

Maria Hadden
Alderwoman, 49th Ward

Celebrations & Appreciations
You didn't think we were going to allow a pandemic to make us stop celebrating and appreciating our community did you? Of course not! We need this more than ever, so please, send us the people, orgs and actions that you want the ward to know about next week! Email us at
Care for Real Rogers Park Receives Capacity Building Grant

Care for Real was chosen as a recipient of a new grant from the Greater Chicago Food Depository. The GCFD Capacity Building Grant Program was created to strengthen emergency food systems in communities beset by racial disparities that have been exacerbated by the pandemic. Care for Real is one of 26 organizations that will benefit from these racial-justice-driven grants.    

When the pandemic hit in the spring of 2020, Edgewater-based Care for Real learned of new and increased hunger and food insecurity in the Rogers Park community. By May 19th, Care for Real had launched a pop-up pantry at the United Church of Rogers Park located at 1545 W Morse Ave to respond to this need. Care for Real’s free grocery distribution has been a lifeline for many families in Rogers Park and surrounding neighborhoods. As a result of the pandemic, Care for Real has served even greater numbers of households in Edgewater and Rogers Park, both of which are among the most racially and ethnically diverse neighborhoods in Chicago. Care for Real is a center for our diverse community and has been distributing food weekly in Rogers Park for the past nine months. 

If you or someone you know is in need of Care for Real’s services, please visit, or call 773-769-6182 for more information.

City Hall Updates
Statement on CARES Act Budget Appropriation
Learning that the Mayor's team chose to spend $280M in CARES funds on police instead of on housing, health services, schools, or small businesses is mind-boggling.

I voted against the Mayor's proposed budget appropriations in June because she wouldn't commit to ensuring that these funds went to the areas of most need and not the police.

We could've given that money to people who need to pay rent, landlords to maintain housing, schools to make the necessary improvement to remote learning, small businesses who are struggling to keep their doors open, and even as direct hardship payments to our residents.

We set up a volunteer community response team with a hotline to help people get groceries and medicine. We've raised money from individuals in our ward to give hardship payments to our neighbors. We find creative ways to support our businesses and community organizations however we can.

My office tries to support neighbors who have lost their family members, their jobs and are afraid to lose their homes. In light of all the need and the ways we could've spent these funds, this allocation of these funds is wrong. It's immoral.

As we enter talks about the carryover funds and the new round of relief coming, I'll be demanding our city put our people first. We need to get our priorities straight.
OIG Releases Report on
Police Response to George Floyd Protest
Photo Credit: Block Club Chicago
A much-anticipated vote on CPAC and GAPA, two community-based ordinances to bring civilian accountability to Chicago policing was supposed to happen in the Committee on Public Safety on Friday. Instead, the Mayor asked Chairman Taliaferro to cancel the meeting because she wants to introduce her own ordinance.

This delay makes a mockery of the democratic process and further delays the accountability that she promised us during her campaign. As a supporter of both CPAC and GAPA, I am angered by this action.

It is an especially baffling move in the same week that we learned that she chose to spend 65% of our CARES funds on police time AND that the
City of Chicago Office of Inspector General released their report on the police conduct and city response to the George Floyd protests last summer.

Their inquiry: "OIG finds that Chicago's response to George Floyd protests and unrest included breakdowns in the mass arrest process, unfulfilled use of force reporting obligations, and operational structure and policy gaps that crippled accountability from the start."

I will be working with my colleagues in the Progressive and Black Caucuses on how we can ensure that we bring true reform and accountability to our police department and not a watered-down version. 

The full OIG report is available to read online
Ward Updates
Vote in PB49 Through March 12!
It's that time of year again! Once again, participatory budgeting will look different this cycle than in years past due to the COVID-19 crisis. Instead of hosting in-person voting events, we are asking that folks predominantly rely on online voting to cast their ballot. The 49th Ward office will still distribute paper ballots but will be doing targeted outreach to our community-based organizations, food pantries, senior homes, and others to disseminate those. 

Also different this cycle than in previous cycles is that 49th Ward residents will see a separate section on the ballot to vote on policies and programs. These policies and programs are not eligible for the traditional $1 million capital infrastructure funding, but will instead help Alderwoman Hadden develop agenda to pursue in the 49th Ward and citywide.​

For those wishing to vote online, simply fill out an online registration form. Our staff will respond with the voting site link and an access code that will allow you to vote.  Please note that this is not an automated system; rather, office employees will be verifying the information. This may result in a delay from the time you submit the registration form to when you receive the code.

To view what is included on this cycle's ballot, visit the 49th Ward website

Theatre Above the Law Opens New Show - Constellations
We have been waiting to bring this amazing and moving play to YOU for almost 3 years. It was to be the closing production of our 4th season last May. Covid had other plans. The cast and production crew stayed vigilant and dedicated to have it come to fruition. We began rehearsing online and then creating a production bubble of 2 cast members, stage manager and director and rehearsed the past 5 weeks with masks on. Our cast both just tested negative to begin tech without the 2 of them masked and we are filming the performance this weekend with a masked audience of 6 from our bubble and another with no audience.

This production is a long time coming and well worth the wait. We feel it deserves a live audience. That is not possible right now. Hopefully someday we can all experience it together. It the meantime, YOU have 10 opportunities to watch from home. 

Streaming tickets are available here. Thank YOU for supporting Theatre for YOU!

COVID-19 Updates
As we continue to combat COVID-19 across the city, state, and country, we are bringing back our section with the most up-to-date information on the ongoing public health crisis and any changes that are being implemented to address it. Information on aid and relief programs will continue to be housed in the "Need to Know Info" section of this newsletter. 
City Announces Expansion of Indoor Dining
The City of Chicago announced this week that, effective immediately, indoor service at bars, restaurants, and event venues can increase to the lesser of 40% capacity or 50 people per room or floor. 
This decision to expand indoor service was based on metrics determined by the Chicago Department of Public Health. This includes recording fewer than 400 new COVID-19 cases per day, based on the seven-day rolling average, for each of the last three days. CDPH reports that all four metrics that Chicago is using to determine when and how to reopen cautiously have now moved into the “Moderate-Risk” level for at least three days, allowing for this expansion of indoor dining. The following metrics are being used to determine the process for continuing to ease COVID-19 regulations: 
  • COVID cases diagnosed per day: currently averaging 344, in the “Moderate-Risk” level 
  • COVID test positivity: currently averaging 3.6%, in the “Low-Risk” level 
  • Emergency Departments visits for COVID-like illness: currently averaging 62 per day, in the “Moderate-Risk” level 
  • ICU beds occupied by COVID patients: currently averaging 117, in the “Moderate-Risk” level
While the city has shifted to phase IV of the re-opening risk matrix, people must continue to practice social distancing and mask-wearing to continue to curtail the spread of COVID. 
CDPH Partners with Zocdoc to
Launch Vaccine Appointment Scheduler
The Chicago Department of Public Health has partnered with Zocdoc to create a more centralized platform where people can schedule vaccination appointments when they’re available. To view available appointments through Zocdoc at

At this time, this platform is showing available appointments at the city's Point of Distributions sites (PODS) and Rush University Medical Center. More information on where to locate other vaccination sites is contained below in this newsletter.
Three Ways Chicago Residents can Receive a COVID-19 Vaccine:
The City of Chicago began inoculating people in phase 1b of the vaccine rollout this week. Individuals in this group include essential frontline workers and residents aged 65 and older. 

There are three ways Chicago residents can receive a COVID-19 vaccine:
1. Your health care provider
Your first contact should be your health care provider, including your primary care provider, health clinic, or hospital where you have gotten medical care in the past. Over 350 health care providers have signed up with CDPH to distribute vaccine. Providers are also reaching out directly to schedule appointments with their existing patients, prioritizing those who are older with more underlying conditions. Health care providers can still sign-up to be vaccine providers.
2. Your pharmacy
The City of Chicago has provided vaccines to pharmacies across Chicago. These pharmacies each have their own registration link which can be found below.
The City of Chicago does not endorse any of the listed organizations. This list is provided only as a convenience. See the full disclaimer here.
3. Your employer
Specific employers in prioritized essential workers groups will be able to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine to their employees in 1b. CDPH is working directly with employers as vaccines become available. For example, first responders are already being vaccinated and others will begin soon. If you receive your vaccine through your employer, you will not need to take any other action. 
For those that have insurance but do not have a primary care provider, please check with your insurance company for a list of providers accepting new patients. One option is to enroll with one of Chicago’s many Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) if you do not have insurance. 

For especially vulnerable populations (e.g., those facing housing insecurity or undocumented immigrants), the city will partner with city colleges to set up PODs (points of distribution) to vaccinate residents. At this time, PODs are continuing to vaccinate health care workers included in phase 1a, and no appointments are available yet to those included in phase 1b. 

While the city has transitioned to phase 1b of the vaccination rollout, supply remains limited. Last week, CDPH informed aldermanic offices that they're currently receiving 34,000 doses of the vaccine a week, which amounts to roughly 5% of people in group 1b. This means that appointments are filling up fast. On Tuesday, President Biden announced that his administration is working to purchase an additional 200 million doses of the vaccine. Their goal is to have enough vaccine supply for the entire adult U.S. population by the end of the summer. 

You can track the vaccine data for the city of Chicago on CDPH's website by clicking here
Howard Brown Health Vaccine Appointments

Howard Brown Health is now offering the COVID-19 vaccine to established patients and community members who are essential frontline workers or age 65 or older. Reserve your vaccine appointment online.

Appointments may be rescheduled based on the availability of the vaccine. Due to supply, vaccination appointments are available at limited clinic locations in Chicago. The appointment for the second dose will be scheduled at the end of your first appointment.

All appointments are subject to change based on vaccine availability.

Details regarding the Howard Brown vaccination rollout plan will continue to change in the coming days. Please visit for the latest information regarding scheduling and availability.

Rush Medical Vaccine Appointments
Rush has been working with local and city officials to begin delivering the COVID-19 vaccine to its community, following the guidelines outlined by the Chicago and Illinois Departments of Public Health. Based on those guidelines, eligible people will include those 65 years of age or older and essential workers, including health care workers. 

To view available appointments at Rush Medical, visit their website.
Heartland Health Vaccine Survey
Heartland Health Center, located at 1300 W. Devon in Rogers Park, is a designated Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). As we continue with the vaccine rollout for phase 1b, they will be giving the vaccine to established patients who meet CDC and IDPH guidance. 

At this time, Heartland Health has limited vaccines. They are currently contacting their highest risk patients in 1b to ensure that they're receiving their dose. As they receive more vaccines, they'll continue to reach out to the remaining eligible 1b patients. This meant that they're not currently accepting calls for vaccine appointments until they have a steadier supply of vaccines.

However, they are looking to support residents while they await more supplies. If you are interested in receiving the vaccine from Heartland Health Centers, please take a moment to complete their online survey. As soon as more doses become available, they will contact individuals who have completed this survey. 
Swedish Covenant Vaccine Waitlist Registry
Swedish Hospital has created a waitlist to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at their facility. At this time, they are preparing to vaccinate seniors ages 65 and older and those that still remain in group 1A. However, you may complete their online waitlist to receive more information as vaccine appointments become available. 

For more information and to sign up, visit Swedish Hospital's website.
Transportation for COVID-19 Vaccines
For seniors and people with disabilities who need assistance to access their COVID-19 vaccine appointment will be able to take advantage of transportation resources. 

Special Needs Chicago

Special Needs Chicago has wheelchair accessible transportation throughout the Chicagoland area (city and suburbs) to assist people with getting to their COVID vaccine appointment. Call 630-668-9999 for more information or click here to book a reservation

Uber to Provide Free Rides to Vaccine Appointments

Uber has partnered with Walgreens Pharmacy to make it easier for people who don't have a car or a nearby pharmacy to get their COVID-19 vaccine. Uber will offer free rides to Walgreens stores and clinics for those who book an appointment and live in an underserved community. Uber will work with community organizations, such as the Urban League, to determine underserved communities that will be eligible for free rides. Those organizations will then work to distribute codes that community members can use to get the free rides. 
Sign-Up for Chi COVID Coach
Our office has received several inquiries about how to register for a COVID-19 vaccine. At this time, the city does not have registration open. However, we recommend that folks sign up for the Chi COVID Coach, developed in 2020 by CDPH. As registration becomes available for a vaccine, Chi COVID Coach will notify you over text message with updates on the vaccine and how to receive one. 

The registration will walk you through four steps to sign up, including identifying any underlying health conditions that might put you at an elevated risk or if your occupation falls within an essential services category. To register, visit
Sign Up for CDPH's E-Newsletter
The Chicago Department of Public Health is dedicated to ensuring that all Chicagoans get trusted information about its local COVID-19 response. Sign up online for their email list and be among the first to receive press releases, current guidance, and other important information. 
How the COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine Works
The approved COVID-19 mRNA vaccines do not contain any live virus of COVID-19. Instead, scientists used the genetic sequence of the virus to create a blueprint of the COVID-19 virus. The virus will trigger the body to produce the spike protein in the COVID-19 virus, which will signal our immune systems to produce the proper antibodies and T cells to combat the RNA blueprint. This means that should an individual contract the COVID-19 virus after being inoculated, the body's immune system will already have stored the information necessary to combat the virus. 

When people receive a vaccination, they might feel some side effects as their immune systems respond to the spike protein. The most common side effects include swelling and some pain at the injection site as well as fever, chills, headaches, and fatigue. These side effects are temporary and indicate that the immune system is imprinting its response to combat COVID-19. 
State Eviction Moratorium Extended to March 6
Governor Pritzker announced that the State's eviction moratorium will be extended to March 6, 2021 as the COVID-19 crisis continues to impact our state and our country. 

On November 14, protections for Illinois tenants were changed under the latest eviction moratorium extension. Landlords can now file evictions unless tenants give them a written declaration that they should be protected by the COVID Eviction Moratorium. The Lawyers Committee for Better Housing. Tenants can use IDHA's declaration template to provide their landlord with written notice that they've been financially impacted due to COVID-19. That declaration is available online

The Department of Housing has put together a Know Your Rights website for tenants who are facing illegal lockouts during the eviction moratorium. The Lawyers Committee for Better Housing has also put together information for tenants facing an illegal lockout and may be able to provide legal assistance to income-eligible tenants. Learn more on their website here
Updates to the Emergency Travel Order

The Chicago Department of Public Health announced updates to the Chicago Emergency Travel Order. Effective Friday, January 15, 2021, states will only be categorized as yellow or orange. Previously, the city had three category levels for the Emergency Travel Order.

The updates to the order are meant to simplify the message by putting states into one of two categories. Regardless of which category a state falls into, CDPH is still advising that people avoid any kind of travel as we see COVID-10 cases surging across most of the U.S. Additionally, the new COVID variant that is more transmissible has now been detected in at least 8 states, including Indiana and Wisconsin. 

Anyone traveling from a state on the Orange list is directed to obtain a negative COVID-19 test result no more than 72 hours prior to arrival in Chicago or quarantine for a 10-day period (or the duration of their time in Chicago, whichever is shorter).  They must practice strict social distancing, mask-wearing, and avoid any in-person gathering. Anyone traveling from a state on the Yellow list is not required to quarantine or provide a pre-arrival test. However, they should practice strict mask-wearing and social distancing.

The lists are updated every two weeks based on state and Chicago case averages. There are no travel restrictions within Illinois. However, non-essential travel to the areas of high incidence is discouraged. If essential travel is needed, follow the prevention techniques such as using a face covering, frequent hand washing/sanitization, and maintaining social distancing.

24th District Seniors Film Series

To celebrate Black History Month, they will share Pamela Sherrod Anderson's 2020 documentary, The G Force.

From Joe Strother in MSU Today (January 21, 2021):

"All her life, Pamela Sherrod Anderson has had a passion for storytelling. “I had a father and a mother who were very conscious about being informed,” said Anderson. “My parents would read the newspaper to me at night, and tell stories from their life, instead of the fairy tales. I always enjoyed hearing the old folks’ stories from around the neighborhood. So even then, I guess I was laying the groundwork for being a storyteller by taking in these stories.” 

Anderson has translated that passion for stories into a long and successful career working in a variety of different roles. She is the founder of Graceworks Theater and Film Productions LLC. She is also an award-winning writer, filmmaker, playwright, educator, and journalist.

Her most recent documentary “The G Force,” was recognized as a semi-finalist at the 2020 Cannes International Independent Film Festival. "The G Force" is a film that highlights the rising trend in society of grandparents raising their grandchildren."

As a special addition to their program, they will be opening the screening with Hair Love, by writer and director Matthew Cherry. Cherry won the 2020 Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film, which tells a heartwarming story of an African American father helping his daughter with her hair.

Join the screening via Zoom using the login information below. No RSVP is required to attend the screening. Email with any questions.

CPS Launches SQRP Revisioning Initiative

Chicago Public Schools (CPS) announced the launch of an effort to create a new system for measuring school quality. Key goals of the new SQRP go beyond traditional school ratings to include:

  • Providing a more complete picture of school performance and progress: The advisory group will seek to better portray the various ways in which schools have improved and are serving the needs of their diverse student populations. 
  • Improving the district’s capacity to support schools: Effective accountability systems are tied to strong school support, and the new system should ensure that every school is effectively supported.
  • Providing clear information to parents and the public: By better understanding what parents and other stakeholder groups want measured and reported, the new system should help each family choose the school that best meets their child’s unique needs and advocate for the support their school community needs.
  • Evaluating and reporting on district effectiveness: The entire district must share responsibility for improvements in student outcomes, and the new accountability system will develop and report measures of district effectiveness that will enable conversations about district accountability.

CPS will hold targeted engagement sessions with existing stakeholder groups — such as Community Action Councils (CACs), Parent Advisory Councils (PACs) and Local School Councils (LSCs) — launching district-wide stakeholder meetings, issuing surveys, and holding stakeholder-specific focus groups and workshops.

CPS  is also launching an advisory group that will develop and propose the new policy, which will be rooted in community feedback. The new policy will be presented to the Board of Education for consideration in spring 2022, with the first school ratings under the new system released in the fall of 2023 (for SY22-23).  Advisory group members include parents, student representatives, teachers, principals, Board of Education members, and accountability experts from UChicago Consortium on School Research and UIC’s Center for Urban Education Leadership. 

The advisory group will review materials, research proposals on system designs, ensure the incorporation of parent, educator, and other stakeholder feedback, and provide recommendations for how it believes the district should redesign its accountability system. Out of a commitment to openness and transparency in the district’s decision-making process, materials from these meetings will be available to the public via

A full list of members can be found below:

Earlier this month, the district began holding small-group conversations with key CPS stakeholder groups such as PACs, LSC members, and CACs. I

In March 2021, the district will hold four citywide town halls that will be simultaneously aired in Spanish. These small and large group discussions aim to create a baseline understanding of the history and purpose of school accountability while also collecting initial feedback from a broad set of stakeholders across the city. 

Virtual Town Hall Dates:

After initial feedback meetings, the district will engage in a set of deeper, more intensive engagement through stakeholder-specific focus groups, surveys, workshops and other research and data collection. The perspectives, input, and ideas generated through these discussions will be presented to the advisory group on a frequent, ongoing basis and ultimately reflected in the final proposed policy developed by the advisory group. 

Chicago Monuments Project

Monuments and memorials have become a focal point for conversation, protest and activism in the city of Chicago. In response, the City has created a committee to review the city’s collection of monuments and recommend solutions. The Chicago Monuments Project intends to grapple with the often unacknowledged – or forgotten – history associated with the City’s various municipal art collections and provides a vehicle to address the hard truths of Chicago’s racial history, confront the ways in which that history has and has not been memorialized and develop a framework for marking public space that elevates new ways to memorialize Chicago’s true and complete history. To learn more and share your thoughts, please visit – and join the conversation on social media using #ChicagoMonuments.
City Launches Financial Navigator Program

 Financial navigators are now available to help residents deal with the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The service is free and available over the phone to provide customized response plans and immediate action steps to help residents better manage expenses and maximize income. Assistance is available in both English and Spanish.  

To sign up for this Financial Navigator Program, residents can complete the online at A financial navigator will then send a short service agreement and call the resident to begin a one-on-one session. During the session, the navigator will identify the next steps to resolve the resident’s financial issues. The resident will then receive a document via email outlining those next steps. 

This initiative is administered through the Chicago Department of Family and Support Services’ Workforce Development Division, in partnership with Cities for Financial Empowerment Fund (CFE Fund) and Heartland Alliance. CFE Fund, provided grant funding along with significant technical assistance and training to launch the program in Chicago and other cities and counties across the nation. The Financial Navigators initiative is supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Citi Foundation, JPMorgan Chase & Co., and the Wells Fargo Foundation.

Emergency Relief for Affordable Multifamily Properties (ERAMP)
The ERAMP program is a financial assistance program established to help preserve the availability of safe, clean, and affordable housing units in the City of Chicago’s existing portfolio of multifamily affordable rental projects, for individuals and families that may experience financial hardship resulting from COVID 19. 

The program provides grants or no-interest, deferred payment loans of up to $75,000. Eligible uses of funds include expenses associated with deep cleaning services, the purchase of PPEs and disinfecting agents, and/or maintaining property operations including general operating, maintenance, utilities, administration, taxes, and senior debt service payments. Partnership fees are ineligible uses.

Qualified affordable housing properties must have five or more units and subject to a Regulatory Agreement requiring affordable housing units on the premises. Properties that are not under regulatory requirements to provide affordable units are ineligible (i.e. properties that are considered naturally occurring affordable housing will not be considered at this time). Portions of properties that receive unit-based rental assistance (e.g., Section 8 Project-Based Vouchers) are not eligible. 
File Your Taxes with Tax Prep Chicago
The City of Chicago will offer free, confidential tax help through mid-April in partnership with Ladder Up. Trained volunteer tax preparers can assist you in completing and electronically filing Federal and Illinois tax returns for Tax Year 2020 and, in some cases, for prior years. They'll also be able to help determine if you qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), Child Tax Credit (CTC), and other tax credits!

The tax filing deadline is Thursday, April 15! For more information, visit or call (312) 588-6900 to schedule an appointment and see if you qualify.
Senior Sewer Rebate Program Update
The Office of the City Clerk no longer functions as the intake office for receipt of eligible first-time applicants and renewals for the Senior Sewer Rebate program. Instead, the Department of Finance's Utility Billing and Customer Service Division processes the applications.

The yearly renewal form requires the claimant to provide a copy of their government-issued identification and a recent property tax bill for verification purposes. To simplify the application process, the Senior Rebate for multi-unit buildings and the Senior Exemption for single-family homes use the same application form and require the same documentation. The property type determines for which program the senior is eligible. Renewal letters have been mailed to those who received the rebate in 2020. 

Current information and application forms can be accessed online at When you're on the website, make sure to click utility charge exemptions and rebates. Those with questions about the program can email or call 312-744-4426.

Seniors can return their application and documentation in an email to or by mail to the following address:

LIHEAP For All: Financial Assistance for All,
Regardless of Legal Status

Low-income families in the state of Illinois can still apply for financial assistance to help pay for gas or electric bills through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) until June 30, 2021. However, the sooner you apply, the better.

CUB recommends that to avoid misinformation, the most reliable way to get details about LIHEAP benefits is to always use the State of Illinois’s website.

LIHEAP remains available up to 200% of the federal poverty level, and undocumented applicants are welcome. Currently, the LIHEAP system accepts an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) in place of a Social Security number (SSN). Even if you don’t have an ITIN, you can still apply. 

To apply for LIHEAP, fill out the pre-qualification application. Once you fill out your application, your local LIHEAP office will contact you. 

For more information and to learn about other financial assistance programs, visit the state’s Help for Illinois Families website.

If you have any questions, please call the Citizen's Utility Board's consumer hotline at 1-800-669-5556. If you need help in Spanish, you can call 1-833-711-0374. 

Senior Citizens can Apply for Property Tax Deferral

Senior citizens having a hard time paying their property taxes can take advantage of a loan program administered by the Cook County Treasurer’s Office.

Seniors whose annual household income is $55,000 or less can apply now for the Senior Citizen Real Estate Tax Deferral Program, which issues loans to cover property tax payments.

The loans, which are issued by the State of Illinois, do not have to be repaid until the property is sold or the homeowner dies. The state charges a simple interest rate of 6 percent per year. The maximum loan is $5,000 per year. To qualify, homeowners must be at least 65 years old by June 1 of the year in which the application is made.

To apply:

  • Download the application from
  • Submit the completed application and copies of the required documents to the Treasurer’s Office
  • The deadline is March 1, 2021. Applications after that date cannot be accepted
  • Homeowners must reapply every year
  • The First Installment for Tax Year 2020 is due March 2, 2021, but late charges are waived through May 3, 2021
Two Month Waiver Available for Property Tax Late Fees
In November, the Cook County Board of Commissioners voted to waive late fees for two months on both property tax installments due in 2021, giving cash-strapped property owners more time to juggle their finances.
The Board unanimously waived for two months the 1.5 percent per month late fee on all Tax Year 2020 property taxes, according to a news release. Specifically:
  • The First Installment of 2020 taxes is due March 2, 2021, with application of late charges moved back to May 3, 2021.
  • The Second Installment of 2020 taxes is due August 2, 2021, with application of late charges moved back to October 1, 2021.
