Together, we are working to build strong, equitable communities across North Carolina, addressing the historic barriers that have prevented North Carolinians from getting the essential legal services they need and deserve. With your partnership, we can expand the impact we are having on North Carolina communities.

Grant Programs

Grants are made only to non-profit, charitable organizations that are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or to organizations that otherwise demonstrate a charitable purpose.

NC IOLTA awards grants under two of the grant purposes identified in the rules governing NC IOLTA, Section .1300 of the Governing Rules of the North Carolina State Bar.

The two grant programs are:

  1. Civil Legal Aid Grant Program supports organizations that provide civil legal aid for indigent people residing in every county in North Carolina.
  2. Administration of Justice Grant Program provides support for programs seeking to improve the administration of justice in North Carolina.
