CMAA COVID-19 CASH ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

 

For CMAA COVID-19 Cash Assistance Program: 

CMAA is offering direct financial assistance to low-income families who have been economically impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, with a focus on the North Suburbs and Greater Elgin Area. If you have been struggling financially with mortgage payments, utilities, purchasing groceries or meeting any other immediate needs as a result of this crisis, please refer to the program eligibility criteria below. 

 

Recipients must:

  • Have a pre-crisis income that is 60% of the Area Median Income (AMI)

  • Show that they have experienced a financial hardship due to the COVID-19 crisis (documentation can include an unemployment insurance claim, a notice from their employer about layoffs or furloughs, pay stubs, etc.)

If you are eligible to apply, please fill out the application below and email it to COVID19Resources@chinesemutualaid.org. Please note that filling out this application does not guarantee an award due to limited funding, however, we will be expanding the program as resources become more available. 

CMAA’s Cash Assistance Program is now closed for any new applications. If you didn’t hear from us by 12/11/2020 unfortunately your application didn’t get approved because we ran out of funding. Thank you!
