Housing Counseling.

Housing is an essential part of Madison County Urban League (MCUL) programs, and the agency has been certified by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) since the early 1980s. Individuals and families who are homeless, at risk of foreclosure or evictions can turn to the agency for support. There are programs such as emergency solutions grant or the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program that may be able to help. They often work by stabilizing clients by quickly finding funds to pay their overdue expenses or another option is locating new, low income housing for them to reside in.

MCUL also works to prevent foreclosures as well in Illinois. The organization provides mortgage delinquency counseling to homeowners who are behind on their payments and facing foreclosure. This service offers people from the community with education and advocacy in an effort to help them bring their mortgage payments up to date and avoid foreclosure.
