Good State Budget News
Your advocacy paid off! The FY21 State budget passed by the IL General Assembly last month includes $1.4M in funding for civil legal aid, as well as $1.4M for the Illinois Armed Forces Legal Aid Network and $1.6M for Cannabis Expungement.
Thank you to everyone who contacted their state legislators about the importance of civil legal aid funding. More Illinois residents will now be able to access the justice system and protect their homes, families and livelihoods.
