CHICAGO (AP) – Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s office is designating up to $70 million to help people and communities affected by the foreclosure crisis.

The money comes from the state’s portion of a national foreclosure settlement with mortgage companies over allegations of fraudulent practices.

The money will be used for counseling services for families, Madigan said in a news release.

It also will provide relief to communities where properties were left vacant and abandoned.
