"If you are a renter whose primary residence is in Illinois and are behind on rent due to economic hardship caused by COVID-19, you may be eligible for up to 15 months of rental payments to cover back-rent owed from June 2020 through August 2021."

See IllinoisRentalAssistance.org. This is available regardless of immigration status.

Illinois Eviction Protections | November 13, 2020

Executive Order 2020-72 protects renters from eviction if they are affected by COVID-19, are paying what they're able, and don't make over $99,000. See the Illinois FAQ page for up-to-date information. Tenants will still owe rent.

Evictions can only be enforced by Law Enforcement. However, the executive order halts said enforcement, unless the "resident of the residential property has been found to pose a direct threat to the health and safety of other tenants or an immediate and severe risk to property"

The protections are in effect regardless of immigration status. See Eviction Help illinois for legal assistance & mediation services.
