CARES Act Chicago Property Search

Under the federal CARES Act, renters in buildings with certain federal support cannot be evicted until July 25, 2020.

The Department of Housing has created a public database of market-rate apartment buildings with five or more units with certain kinds of federal support that are covered by this eviction moratorium. Search your address on the database now.

What does it mean if my building is on this list?

You are likely covered by the federal eviction moratorium until July 25, 2020.

What does it mean if my building is not on this list?

This list is not complete. For example, it does not contain any buildings with fewer than five units. If you live in a rental building with one to four units, you can ask your landlord about whether they have a federally backed mortgage.

What if I live in a federally subsidized building?

This list may not contain certain subsidized buildings, including Low Income Housing Tax Credit properties. If you live in a federally subsidized building, you are also covered by the eviction moratorium in the CARES Act through July 25, 2020.
