Grant to Help Organization Help Clients with Legal Resources

Law Librarians of Puget Sound has a community outreach program, offering a grant of up to $500 for a project to create, expand, or update legal resource collections or facilitate access to legal resources for Puget Sound residents.

"Funds may be spent on print or online resources, computer software or hardware or professional services, such as translation of legal materials."

Priority is given to projects serving low-income clients, but there is no income restriction.

Last year, the first grant went to DAWN (Domestic Abuse Women’s Network) for its new DAWN Legal Resource Center – a room at DAWN’s confidential location for their clients to safely access a computer, phone, fax, copier and other resources. The grant enabled DAWN to buy WSBA's three-volume Family Law Deskbook and other materials.

Could your organization use a grant like this?
