Support Funding for the Legal Services Corporation

The federal Legal Services Corporation is a critical source of support for legal aid in Illinois. LSC provided $12.5 million in funding for three Illinois organizations last year: LAF, Land of Lincoln Legal Assistance Foundation, and Prairie State Legal Services. The proposed elimination of LSC funding from the federal budget would leave many areas of the state without meaningful access to legal help. The Chicago Bar Association and the Illinois State Bar have created an LSC Fact Sheet and an online advocacy tool regarding LSC. Please take a moment to learn more and speak up for continued LSC funding.
