Grants

The Texas Access to Justice Foundation grants funds to nonprofit organizations that provide free civil legal services to low-income Texans. The funds from these grants are provided through several sources; including the Interest on Lawyers’ Trust Accounts (IOLTA), Basic Civil Legal Services (BCLS) and Crime Victims Civil Legal Services (CVCLS) programs. Funds awarded by the Foundation must be used to provide free civil legal assistance to eligible clients in non-criminal matters.

TAJF requires an annual financial audit of each grantee to help assure compliance with the terms and conditions of the grant award. The Foundation conducts in-person site visits with each grantee to assess the grantee’s compliance with grant requirements and evaluate the quality and effectiveness of their operations and services. The Foundation encourages collaboration among grantees and provides technical assistance to facilitate improvements in legal services delivery.

For more information about grants or the grantsmaking process, contact Jonathan Vickery, Director of Grants.
