2023 LNA Out of Cycle Grant
In early 2022, NC IOLTA and the NC Equal Access to Justice Commission surveyed and convened legal aid provider organizations about opportunities to respond to gaps identified in the 2021 Legal Needs Assessment. This led to the establishment of four working groups to identify specific strategies to respond to identified needs in the areas of 1) family law; 2) legal services for immigrant populations; 3) outreach and communications; and 4) coordinated intake. In September 2022, the working group participants identified practical recommendations that the community should pursue and fleshed out action steps to take in order to execute the recommendations. The final recommendations and action items are available here.
The NC IOLTA Board has awarded five grants to support implementation of the final recommendations and/or action items identified by the Legal Needs Assessment working groups. The full list of grants is available here.
