Submitted by the City of Evanston
The City of Evanston and the Reparations Subcommittee are soliciting feedback on the City’s Restorative Housing Reparations program.
The survey, available at surveymonkey.com/r/COEReparations, is intended to gather input from 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 Morton Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave., Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Those dropping off completed paper surveys should enter on the west side of the building at the sliding door.
Survey responses will help the City identify, prioritize and quantify individuals interested in and eligible for the program; the survey is not an application. 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.
