The Fund supports public interest litigation that has the potential to benefit a large number of people, lead to significant law reform, and raise public consciousness of social justice issues. Preference is given to civil rights, human rights, anti-poverty, and environmental justice cases that will affect a marginalized group. The Fund supports nonprofit legal firms, private attorneys, and/or small law firms working to advance social justice. Grants are awarded to private attorneys, small legal firms, and nonprofit legal entities that do not have sufficient access to funding sources. Specifically, grants are intended to support cases that could not be effectively prosecuted, and/or in which financial hardship would occur to the applicant if supplementary funding were not available. Grants may cover reasonable costs and out-of-pocket expenses (including non-recoverable costs) such as deposition expenses, expert fees, and investment expenses. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
