NOTE regarding email contact: If your intention is to communicate a possible instance of discrimination for IDHR's response, we invite you to include a Complainant Information Sheet (CIS) with your email. You may access a CIS for Housing-Related instances of discrimination here; or, access a CIS for all other (non-housing related) concerns here. See also the helpful information in our Frequently Asked Questions, to inform an inquiry about filing a charge.

NOTE regarding Registered Bidders or Public Contractors: Have you previously registered your business as an Eligible Bidder/Public Contractor with IDHR and you recently received an email from "Licenses and Permits"? This is an email inviting you to set up your account in the new Illinois Enterprise Licensing and Permitting portal for IDHR. Please visit our Public Contracts Unit page or view/download our User Guide to learn more. If your IDHR Number is current/valid, and you have not been notified of an upcoming renewal date, there is no deadline to establish your online account; yet we encourage vendors to follow the prompts in your email notification. With questions about this process, contact IDHR's Public Contracts Unit at IDHR.PublicContracts@illinois.gov
