Buddy, can you spare some time for civil legal aid funding?
Will there be an Illinois state budget by June 30, the last day of fiscal year 2016? If not, this marks Year 2 without a state appropriation for civil legal aid. It also means the IEJF cannot access filing fee revenue earmarked for legal aid resources for veterans and active duty military. Domestic violence victims, seniors losing their homes to foreclosure and veterans trying to access hard-earned benefits cannot wait another year. Please use our Advocacy Tool Box to contact your elected officials in support of state funding for civil legal aid. It takes less than three minutes to make your voice heard. TAKE ACTION.
