The team at Unqork led by Angela Abernathy worked with the City of Chicago to build a customizable and flexible platform that would automate and scale proper distribution of Rent Relief funds to those in need.
This platform serves the city and its constituents immensely in their effort to ensure Chicagoans are receiving the proper relief that is certainly over-due.
"Over the course of this incredibly difficult year, our residents, especially our most vulnerable ones, have faced unimaginable loss that is compounded by a systemic poverty and lack of access to safe, affordable housing," said Mayor Lightfoot. "The Emergency Rental Assistance Program will not only help to relieve these residents of the fear of losing their homes and being thrown further into uncertainty and socioeconomic instability but allow our city to make significant progress in our mission to provide our communities with resources they need to thrive long after this pandemic is over."
"We are proud to support the City of Chicago and the Department of Housing to get critical relief to families who need it to ensure they can stay in their homes," said Cas Holloway, Head of Public Enterprise at Unqork. "Unqork's no-code platform will enable Chicagoans to easily apply for relief, and for the City to ensure that it can be distributed quickly and securely to those who are eligible for it, in compliance with all Federal rules and regulations.'
