Cook County Legal Aid for Housing and Debt: What It Offers and Who and How It Can Help
Countless people have to navigate eviction, debt, and foreclosure legal problems every year without any help. Cook County Legal Aid for Housing and Debt (CCLAHD) provides free services to (1) homeowners who are behind on their mortgage payments, condo assessments, or property taxes; (2) tenants facing eviction and “mom and pop” landlords seeking to evict tenants; and (3) people being sued for consumer debt and people who need to sue for debts owed to them.
CCLAHD is a free program available to Cook County residents, regardless of their incomes or immigration status. Use of CCLAHD services is NOT a public charge benefit.
Informing Cook County Residents of CCLAHD – Outreach to Homeowners in Foreclosure
This Request for Proposals (RFP) describes a new small grants program to further ensure that Cook County homeowners in foreclosure are aware of CCLAHD and are encouraged to keep their court dates. Outreach will consist of visiting (door-knocking) owners of homes in foreclosure, to speak with them and leave information about CCLAHD.
