FurtherJustice Awards $400,000+ to 2024 Legal Ecosystem Grantees

FurtherJustice is thrilled to announce that it has awarded a total of $400,000+ in general operating grants to 24 exceptional organizations through its Legal Ecosystem Grant Program. Each grantee works to make it easier for low-income and underserved communities across New York State to get the best possible legal information, representation and/or empowerment in civil law matters. They accomplish that goal by using a myriad of tools and multi-disciplinary approaches that deepen the impact of their local legal ecosystems.

Among the 2024 Legal Ecosystem Grantees are organizations that:

  • facilitate crucial Know Your Rights workshops;
  • provide deep technical assistance, mentorship and incubation for legal providers and justice workers;
  • develop accessible legal empowerment materials and legal technology for self-represented individuals and community advocates;
  • build coalitions and campaigns calling for equitable access to legal representation and justice; and
  • holistically represent communities in ways that provide comprehensive care and multi-faceted support.

These organizations work with a range of underrepresented communities, including the families of those incarcerated, youth, domestic violence survivors, and those facing serious illness. They offer a variety of civil legal services, including immigration, housing, family law, economic justice, and re-entry. Together, these organizations are working alongside and outside of traditional service models to dismantle barriers to legal empowerment within New York’s civil justice system.
