The Cunningham Township Supervisor’s Office has been funded by Urbana residents to serve low-income residents within Urbana city limits. They provide a welcoming environment for qualifying residents to access monthly financial assistance, job training and education, referrals to other agencies, and advocacy to help meet their needs. Stop by their office at 205 W. Green St., Urbana, 8:30 a.m.-12 p.m. or 1-4:30 p.m., or call (217) 384-4144. If residents are facing eviction, they can work with landlords on a payment plan and can help make a first payment.
