The purpose of the fund ($14.68M in total) is to provide relief to low-income Chicagoans who had difficulties accessing prior federal stimulus payments, including Dependent Youth, Dependent Adults, Domestic Workers, and Undocumented Residents.  

This initial round of applications is open to Chicago Residents who claimed a Dependent 17 years or older on their 2019 taxes. The person submitting this application must be the individual who filed the taxes in 2019.
