Legal Services

NYLPI supports our Legal Services Corporation-funded colleagues and opposes President Trump’s attempts to eliminate funding that helps those most in need.  Civil legal services funding is effective and changes lives.  For example, last year’s $100 million in state legal services funding returned $1 billion – that is $10 for every dollar invested in civil legal services – to the New York State treasury.  Where else do you get such a return on investment and help people stay in their homes, their jobs, and take care of their families?
