Project JRAP (Juvenile Reentry Assistance Program) is a partnership with The Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee and Legal Action of Wisconsin Inc. whose goal is to help young adults eliminate legal barriers to employment and housing so they can become more self-sufficient. The program serves young adults ages 18-24, who have an adult and/or juvenile record, who are currently living in public housing or are former household members of current public housing residents who, but for their criminal record, would be living in public housing. Project JRAP provides free legal representation to assist eligible individuals with the following: criminal expungement of adult and juvenile records; driver’s license restoration; removing, modifying or resolving conflicting financial obligations that stem from the court system; advocating for occupational licensing with appropriate agencies; contesting improper eviction proceedings and Fair Housing Act issues; helping modify or create child support orders; assisting with access to public benefits; and counseling regarding legal rights and obligations in searching for employment.
A representative from Project JRAP will be available at the MATC downtown campus every first and third Tuesday of the month, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on the second floor of the S building for the rest of the spring semester. Please utilize this valuable resource.
