Louisiana Bar Foundation Awards $14.5 Million for Civil Legal Aid

The Louisiana Bar Foundation (LBF), awarded more than $14.5 million in grants to assist women, children, the elderly, people with disabilities, the newly unemployed, and those facing loss of their homes with civil legal aid issues. Civil legal aid is free legal advice, representation, or other legal assistance provided to low-income and vulnerable people who cannot otherwise afford legal help. Access to civil legal aid makes communities stronger by helping people that need it most.

LBF is part of a statewide network of local nonprofits and civil legal aid organizations who serve the region’s poorest citizens. These funds will provide services that go to the very heart of the health, safety, and security issues many citizens experience. LBF President Hon. John C. Davidson (Ret.) states, “Our mission to ensure access to justice remains paramount, and together, we can continue to make a significant impact in the lives of those in need.”
