Are Rental Units Eligible for Assistance?
Owners of rental properties may apply for assistance, including a 0% interest forgivable loan for a term of five years. If the owner still meets the guidelines after five years, the loan will be forgiven.
The following guidelines apply:
50% of the units must be occupied by or made available to tenants at or below 50% of the area median income (AMI)
All remaining units must be occupied by or made available to tenants at or below 80% AMI
Participating owners must give priority in renting units assisted for not less than three years to income-qualifying families with a child under age six.
What is the Process for Applying?
Households with lead-poisoned children will be referred to the program by the Rock Island County Health Department. If enrolled in a housing program operated by the City of Rock Island, you are automatically considered if eligibility criteria are met. Sign up for the
