Local Debt Recovery Program

What is the Local Debt Recovery Program?

The Local Debt Recovery Program (LDRP) provides a mechanism for local governments across the State of Illinois to assist them in recovering certain unpaid debt.

LDRP offers local governments, at no charge, a unique opportunity to utilize the Illinois Office of Comptroller (IOC) to help collect unpaid debts such as parking tickets, ordinance violations, traffic fines, court fines, administrative judgements, utility bills, community college tuition and fees that otherwise might be difficult to collect.

The Illinois General Assembly in 2012 amended the Illinois State Comptroller Act to expand its state offset program to include municipalities, counties, circuit courts, and other units of local government. Since then, the IOC has helped more than 475 local governments recover over $360 million in unpaid debts.
