Illinois Hopes to Avoid Summer Eviction Surge

CHICAGO (AP) The end of tenant protections this summer has raised concerns that thousands of Illinois residents will be unable to afford their monthly rent and face eviction. The state anticipates doling out more than $1 billion to help with outstanding rents, utility payments and other expenses, but advocates worry that some renters won’t get that support in time to stave off eviction. They also agree that finding affordable housing already was difficult pre-pandemic, particularly in Chicago and the suburbs area. A federal freeze on most evictions is set to expire July 31, after the Biden administration extended it Thursday by a month. Illinois plans to end its own moratorium on evictions by August.
