NH Bar Foundation: Foundation Gears Up for Another Round of Justice Grant Funding

After increasing the overall amount of funds available for Justice Grants last year, the NH Bar Foundation is preparing for a new round of Justice Grants, which provide small grants to fund innovative projects.

Applications will be available on the Foundationís website soon and will be due in mid-late fall 2013, according to Foundation coordinator Mary White.

The Justice Grant program broadens the NH Bar Foundationís mission of strengthening the system of justice in New Hampshire by funding efforts to encourage innovation in the the administration of justice, provide community education about the law, and improve access to the legal system.

Justice Grants are funded by donor-supported Justice Funds, some of which are broad in scope. Others funds have specific purposes. Last year, nearly $57,000 in Justice Grants were awarded, including funding for BRIDGES, a domestic and sexual violence support provider to hire an advocate to help victims navigate the court system.

Two grants helped support the production of a documentary film, Telling My Story, a collaboration of Dartmouth College students and female inmates.

Justice Grants also supported the NH Bar Associationís Law Related Education programs for students and the public, as well as the NHBA Pro Bono Referral Programís conversion to a new client database and case management software.

The NH Supreme Court Society received $3,500 to help fund the Constitutionally Speaking event series, and UNH Law used a justice grant to help support a public interest fellowship program for students. Also funded last year was NH Catholic Charities for its immigration law clinic.
