The Reily Reentry Project is designed to assist Louisville Urban League clients and others seeking to expunge their record.

The project facilitates the expungement process and covers most, if-not-all, related fees at no expense. In exchange, participants are asked to enroll in any League program that will equip them with the tools they need to be more successful as they move into more prosperous futures.


Expungement Clinics are held in order to give participants the opportunity to review their cases with an attorney and to prepare their paperwork for filing with the courts. Space is limited at these events and participants are asked to register in advance to ensure they meet the eligibility requirements. The March 2 clinic is currently at capacity. All new registrations will be added to the waitlist for the next clinic.

To register for the next Reily Reentry Project Expungement Clinic, please complete the registration form to the right. Please note that registration DOES NOT guarantee you an appointment at the clinic. Only those who are legally eligible for expungement will receive an appointment.  If your cases are not legally eligible you will not receive an appointment. 


Individuals looking to benefit from the project will have access to the following:


Before enrolling in the project, an individual’s criminal record must be reviewed by an attorney to determine eligibility. Those with records eligible for expungement and who agree to the terms of the program will be enrolled.


All participants will meet with a Community Health Navigator who will conduct a needs-based assessment that allows individuals to identify their top areas of need. Navigators will spend intentional time, working with participants to address their top needs.


Like all programs at the Louisville Urban League, the Rely Reentry Project intends to support the whole person. By wrapping holistic services around participants and their families, the project can ensure that participants are empowered with the knowledge to succeed well after they exit.
