Local Org. Helps Connect Communities to Resources as Eviction Ban Ends

As the Illinois Eviction Moratorium comes to an end this month, many Chicagoans are still facing the negative financial impacts of COVID-19, resulting in a real concern about rent affordability. This is especially prevalent among low-income communities and Chicago’s communities of color, as these communities are more likely to rent their homes. Therefore, the end to the eviction ban could further impact Chicago’s communities that have already been disproportionately affected by the pandemic.

Recognizing these upcoming impacts to the communities it serves, Spanish Coalition for Housing (SCH), a local housing counseling agency, is prepared to work with affected community members to connect them to rental assistance resources. Throughout the pandemic, SCH has supported its neighbors by helping them access various resources, such as utility, rental and mortgage assistance, and plans to continue these efforts as the Eviction Moratorium is lifted. In addition to these immediate resources, SCH also offers long-term housing resources, such as free educational workshops through its Community Alliance program, which helps connect Chicagoans to affordable housing and additional CHA resources.

If you are impacted by the eviction ban ending or are seeking long-term resources for affordable housing, feel free to reach out to SCH via email ( or call (North Region: 773-342-7575; Southwest region: 312-850-2660; Southeast Region: 773-933-7575).
