CREDIT COUNSELING FOR ILLINOIS

Below is a list of primarily community-based nonprofit groups that specialize in pre- and post-purchase homeowner education and credit counseling. Some of these agencies also provide homeowner education classes for borrowers. Many of these agencies focus their efforts on helping low to moderate-income individuals and charge little or nothing for their services. Other agencies may charge for their services or for other costs associated with counseling. Be sure to inquire about any terms and conditions before you enroll in a credit-counseling program or pay any fees.
