About the Eviction Diversion Initiative Program

NCSC’s Eviction Diversion Initiative (EDI) grant program offers an opportunity for courts to learn from and improve upon pandemic-era best practices and to create permanent changes to their high-volume, high-impact eviction dockets. Participating jurisdictions will receive funding to hire dedicated court staff and technical assistance and support to transform their eviction courts into problem-solving courts that emphasize holistic, sustainable, and community-driven resolutions to housing problems.
