The City of Evanston and the Reparations Subcommittee are asking for feedback on the City's Restorative Housing Reparations program.
The survey is available here.
Survey responses will help the City identify, prioritize and quantify individuals interested in and eligible for the program; the survey is not an application.
So far, out of the almost 200 Evanston residents who returned a completed survey, 144 said they would be interested in applying for Evanston’s restorative housing program. Read more from last Thursday's subcommittee meeting in The Daily Northwestern.
The City hopes to gather information from additional current or former Black or African American Evanston residents--along with individuals who may be direct descendants of a Black or African American resident of Evanston who lived in the city between 1919 and 1969.
Community members can also complete a paper copy of the survey and turn it in at the Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave., Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Here's the link to download the paper copy. If you're dropping off a completed paper surveys, enter on the west side of the building at the sliding door. The deadline to complete the survey is Wednesday, March 3, 2021.
The Restorative Housing Reparations program is the first remedy policy developed by the City’s Reparations Subcommittee. The Reparations Subcommittee plans to develop additional remedy policies pertaining to City of Evanston local reparations.
