The Get My Payment IL Coalition
A group of nonprofit organizations has come together to help ensure more hardworking, low-income Illinoisans are able to receive their stimulus funds and to receive these funds more quickly. The coalition includes Ladder Up, the Economic Awareness Council, New America Chicago, Heartland Alliance, Heartland Human Care Services, and Woodstock Institute.
Outreach and Assistance Strategies
The coalition launched a website, www.GetMyPaymentIL.org, on Friday, May 1, that provides clear language about the EIP and how to access it. The site also includes information about safe banking products and tax-filing options. A telephone hotline will be available in mid-May to field questions.
The coalition will work with government and nonprofit partners to spread the word online through websites, social media, and e-newsletters. The coalition will also provide flyers and posters to organizations still providing in-person, essential services and training for case managers.
Contact the coalition at Outreach@GetMyPaymentIL.org to discuss how your organization can help more Illinois residents access their EIP funds.
