Regional and Statewide Grant Funding
Due to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, MLAC is only accepting applications for FY22 regional and statewide general support and special projects funding from legal aid organizations that received such funding in FY21.
For more information, please feel free to contact Lynne Parker, MLAC Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To be eligible for funding from MLAC, an organization must meet the following criteria:
• Be a nonprofit corporation that delivers free legal assistance to low-income people facing civil legal issues;
• Have a board of directors of which at least 25 percent of its members are eligible to receive services, and at least 51 percent of its members are attorneys; and
• Adhere to policies put forth by the MLAC Board of Directors.
These policies, other requirements, and expectations are set forth in the applications. The organization’s executive director must submit assurances that, if awarded funds, the organization will comply with all policies and requirements.
