What is Eviction Diversion?

The Rock Island County Eviction Diversion Program (EDP) provides tenants and landlords with the opportunity to resolve eviction cases without the need for a trial before the Judge. All eviction cases at this time have access to mediation services provided by volunteer court-certified mediators and an eligibility assessment for emergency services and financial assistance with Project NOW and the Salvation Army. Tenants that are income-eligible may also have the opportunity to seek a legal consultation with an attorney from Prairie State Legal Services, Inc. There is no cost charged to the landlord or tenant for these services.
