ILAS, along with six other legal aid groups, has received a grant to assist more people facing eviction. This funding will allow ILAS to hire two contract attorneys to work on eviction cases.
ILAS will also be able to assist in eviction expungement. It can be almost impossible for someone to find housing when they have an eviction filing on their record. A new law passed on July 1, 2022, allowing Indiana tenants who have had evictions filed against them that were dismissed, ruled in their favor, or overturned on appeal, to have the eviction filing expunged from their record.
We are extremely excited about this opportunity to increase our reach to the many people of Central Indiana facing evictions.
If you or someone you know has a passion for helping those in need of legal aid, apply for the contract attorney position below.
