New Eviction Expungement Grant Awarded
LASEV is thrilled to be a recipient of a Legal Services Corporation Pro Bono Innovation Fund Project grant, funding an attorney and paralegal for our Eviction Expungement Project. This project will engage volunteer attorneys to help address the eviction crisis in our service area, focusing on clearing up tenant rental and credit histories to reduce barriers to obtaining affordable housing. Our project staff will coordinate volunteer docket days in General District Courts throughout our service area to assist tenants with eviction expungements and provide additional holistic advice and assistance in addressing barriers to housing.
