RALEIGH, NC—Raleigh City Council today approved funding for a partnership with Campbell University School of Law to serve low-income Raleigh residents who are facing eviction and homelessness. The “City of Raleigh Housing Justice Project with Campbell Law School” will be a legal clinic run by lawyers and law students.
Today’s Council action provides $300,000 in funding ($100,000 per year for three years) from the American Rescue Plan Act. Funding will support the clinic’s mission to provide advice and counsel as well as legal representation to eligible Raleigh residents in eviction proceedings. Eligible residents must live in Raleigh and be at or below 200% of the federal poverty level.
