City of Chicago Rental Assistance Program

The Rental Assistance Program (RAP) provides funding to Chicagoans who are at risk of becoming homeless. RAP helps Chicagoans who have housing right now, but who may become homeless soon because they lost income or had another eligible emergency which prevents them from paying rent.

Please note: Applications are currently closed for the City’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP), which is a separate program.
