For youth or young adults who have been adversely affected by COVID-19, productive time requirements may be waived. Young adults can be as productive as reasonable given the restrictions of the declared emergency. The caseworker and ILP provider will assist the youth or young adult to identify available resources and steps to obtain needed resources.
The maximum rate for ongoing housing programs will be $1,000 (based on need), an increase from $795 per month, including youth who are in the step-down phase of the IL Housing Subsidy Program (months 13-30).
The IL Housing Subsidy 30-month requirement and lifetime amount of $7,000 will be waived for the duration of the declared emergency, or until the young adults 23rd birthday, whichever occurs first.
