Cook County eyes ‘supercharging’ rental assistance program with $73M federal grant
Cook County commissioners cleared the way on Thursday for a new infusion of federal cash that could save thousands of suburban residents from eviction.
The board voted unanimously during its regular meeting to allow the county’s Bureau of Economic Development to accept (21-1609) nearly $73 million in grant funding approved as part of the $908 billion relief package passed by Congress in December, which included about $25 billion in nationwide rental assistance.
