Partnership Grants

Each year, 10 percent of the state Equal Access Funds allocation is distributed by the Legal Services Trust Fund Commission as Partnership Grants. This funding is available for joint projects of courts and qualified legal services agencies to enable the legal services agency to provide self-help services at or near the courthouse. Partnership grants are competitive. The legal services program must submit the application and the presiding judge must approve it. The list of qualified legal services organizations is found here.

Requirements for Partnership Grant Applications are found here.
