The Champaign County Regional Planning Commission is launching a relief program

The Champaign County RPC is launching the COVID-19 Relief Program to assist individual households most affected by this crisis. 

From the press release:

The COVID-19 Relief Program aims to help low-income households maintain the basic need of housing with running utilities through rent assistance, mortgage assistance, water bill assistance, and power bill assistance through the LIHEAP program. In addition to the basic needs of housing and utilities, food and prescription assistance will be provided to support physical health and well-being. The provision of prescription and medical supplies assistance will be accomplished through a partnership with Champaign County Health Care Consumers, an organization that organizes individuals and communities to have a voice in the health care system.

Households can start the process of requesting help here, then they will be referred to the RPC to begin the application process.
