NCSC is now accepting applications for the Eviction Diversion Initiative Grant Program through Friday, April 21. Grants will be awarded to 6-9 state and local courts to launch or expand eviction diversion programs and transform the eviction court experience. EDI grant funds can be used to hire dedicated court staff to oversee the eviction diversion and court reform work and to build community partnerships. Participating courts will also join a national network of courts at the forefront of this work and have access to intensive technical assistance and ongoing support from NCSC staff and program partners as they design, implement, and evaluate their programs.
Two informational webinars about the grant program have been scheduled for Monday, February 13 (Register here) and Wednesday, March 15 (Register here). The webinars will also be recorded and posted to ncsc.org/eviction. Questions about the grant program and application process should be submitted to EDI@ncsc.org. Grant applications are due by Friday, April 21.
