The Lawyers Trust Fund of Illinois (LTF) supports civil legal aid for low-income people in Illinois. Established as a non-profit foundation in 1983, LTF makes grants from revenue generated by the Interest on Lawyers’ Trust Accounts (IOLTA) program as well as a legal aid fee assessed on Illinois lawyers as part of the annual attorney registration process.

LTF’s grants support non-profit organizations that provide a legal safety net for low-income people with desperate needs and nowhere else to turn. In 2022, the legal aid grantees funded by LTF provided services in nearly 110,000 legal matters.
