Legal Aid Infrastructure & Innovation Grants


The California Access to Justice Commission received compelling and impressive proposals for Legal Aid Infrastructure & Innovation projects. Whether posited as an “infrastructure” or an “innovation” grant, these grants have potential for far-reaching impact, and serve a range of constituencies, including immigrants, seniors, veterans, workers, children, and students. 

Of the 69 letters of intent received, the Access to Justice Commission has awarded 47  grants. Details about the grants funded are set forth in the Report on Grant Recommendations.
