ICIRR continues to review lottery applications and will update this site every Friday.
As applications are approved, we will notify our partner organizations and send out debit cards to them, to distribute to people approved for lottery awards.
ICIRR and the Illinois Department of Human Services have agreed to increase awards to approved lottery applicants. Lottery applicants who are approved for an award will receive a pre-paid debit card of $1,500.
Frequently asked questions
I keep getting the message “Cannot find an approved application for this person.” Does this mean I was not approved?
My date of birth (DOB) does not match any application.
I tried the other DOB format, but I still can’t find my application. What else can I do?
What does "Under Review" mean?
Your application has yet to be reviewed because we are still in the process of reviewing that your submitted applications meet all the requirements for submission, this includes manually verifying the information and documents you have submitted. If approved, the list will be updated and you will then find an "Approved" message.
What does "On Hold" mean?
Your application is incomplete because it is missing required documents/information. If you submitted an incomplete application this will lead to a longer review process as we will have to contact you to submit the information needed in order to make a decision on your application. At the moment we are prioritizing applications that have been submitted with all necessary documents in order to make a decision.
What does "Approved" mean?
What does "Denied" mean?
You are not eligible for the funds because based on your application you do not meet the eligibility requirements.
Duplicate - If you submitted multiple applications on your behalf then only one application -usually the one with the most information- will be approved.
When will I receive my card if my application was approved?
Given the number of requests, we expect the process to take about 30 business days after approval.
What if I have more questions?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Due to the large volume of inquiries related to the Covid-19 lottery funds, we are experiencing delays replying to these inquiries.
