Estimated Size of Grant:

The exact dollar amount of any given grant and the way in which the funds are distributed will depend on the quality of the proposal and the number of proposals received.

Term of Contract:

Grants may range from one (1) to three (3) years, depending on the applicant’s request and the agreement of the Bar Foundation. The grants may be renewable, depending on the success of the grantee’s program and the additional continuing needs of the target population.

Projects must start within sixty (60) days of the award unless a specific written request for a different starting date is made in the proposal and approved in the award letter from the Bar Foundation.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible applicants are limited to non-profit organizations located and providing legal services to low-income individuals in Georgia. In a collaborative effort, at least one of the participants must provide legal assistance. Clients of program applicants must be Georgia residents.

Preference will be given to organizations that demonstrate at least the initial stages of becoming self-sustainable.

Two or more applicants may propose to collaborate with each other and submit a joint proposal, or each may separately seek a grant. However, if separate applications are submitted, each must be able to stand on its own merits in case the other is not funded.
