Eligible Chicagoans must demonstrate that their household was at or below 120% of the Area Median Income (AMI)
prior to their change in employment status (due to the crisis) in order to receive the grant. For instance, if you live in a household with four people, to meet the income eligibility requirements, your total household income would have to be at or below $111,840. Use the chart below to determine your income eligibility. First, find the number of people in your household and then look below at the maximum total income allowable for the size of your household.
