Iowa Legal Aid
Iowa Legal Aid provides high quality legal representation in civil cases to low-income Iowans through individual representation, impact litigation, and community legal education. Most of our cases involve domestic abuse, landlord/tenant issues, consumer protection, public benefits or individual rights. Through its Eviction Diversion Project, Iowa Legal Aid provides critical support to Iowans facing eviction in partnership with local social services agencies that can provide rental assistance and other vital services.
