The Legal Services Advisory Committee (LSAC) makes grants to legal services and alternative dispute resolution programs serving low-income clients. LSAC funds programs serving every county in Minnesota, with grantees annually provide service to over 50,000 low-income clients statewide. LSAC grant funding comes from several sources including:
- funds appropriated by the legislature for civil legal services, governed by Minnesota Statutes 480.242;
- a portion of the attorney registration fee dedicated to civil legal services;
- IOLTA revenue; and
- a statewide cy pres endowment dedicated to civil legal services.
LSAC makes grants on a two-year cycle. The FY16-17 grant cycle is now closed. Applications were due March 13, 2015 and final grant award decisions will be made on June 12th, 2015.
