Eviction Record Sealing & U of Akron Emergency Aid Program
An eviction, even a claim that's dismissed, can taint prospective tenants for a lifetime. Still, very few petition the courts to have their evictions sealed. Cleveland Housing Court Judge Ron O'Leary has established a new policy to help, making it easier to seal eviction records. He joins us for The Sound of Ideas. Plus, a look at how the University of Akron is helping students struggling to pay rent or buy food with emergency aid.
