New Eviction Mediation Program Launches in Winnebago County
The IEJF is proud to support the launch of a new eviction mediation program in Winnebago County through the 17th Circuit Court. Any tenant or housing provider with a residential eviction court case can access the program for free. In addition to providing mediation, the program will refer parties to appropriate services, including rental assistance programs.
As part of Eviction Help Illinois, the IEJF awarded a grant to Resolution Systems Institute (RSI) to coordinate the program and deliver virtual mediation programming. Funding for Eviction Help Illinois is provided by the Illinois Department of Human Services.
