Expungement and Employment Barriers Resource Clinic

The Linn County Board of Supervisors is hosting an Expungement and Employment Barriers Resource Clinic on Saturday, September 22, 2018, in Cedar Rapids for Linn County residents. The County is working with Iowa Legal Aid, the City of Cedar Rapids and other local agencies to offer a variety of services to prospective clients. 

The purpose of the clinic is to alleviate the inextricably linked burdens of incarceration, unemployment, poverty and loss of basic rights. Once an application is submitted, Iowa Legal aid will determine if the case and client can be helped. Eligible clients will then receive legal assistance for issues related to expungement, court debt, driver's license and vehicle registration issues, voting rights and criminal records that are being used in legally challengable ways.

In addition to legal assistance, eligible clients will receive information and assistance on obtaining housing, employment, financial planning and other related topics.

Pre-registration is required. Please fill out the application form online or call Iowa Legal Aid at 515-243-1193. The deadline for registration is Friday, September 14.
