McLean County is expected to receive $5,000, with $20,000 being split between it and three other counties.

McLean County and the rest of the 11th Judicial Circuit has been awarded nearly $32,000 in grant funds.

The Self-Represented Litigant (SRL) Coordinator grant, provided by the Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts Access to Justice Program, will go toward upgrading the counties’ courthouse centers.

McLean is expected to receive $5,000, with $20,000 being split between it and three other counties. The exact amount is currently unknown. Woodford County is set to be awarded more than $11,000.

Multiple county clerks within the 11th circuit said they’ll spend the money on upgrading SRL areas with new technology. Ford County will add a new computer, scanner and printer to their courthouse.

It’s unclear what specifically McLean County will use the money for.
