Stay informed on the latest issues affecting civil legal aid funding in Massachusetts.
Lack of funding forces civil legal aid programs in Massachusetts to turn away the majority of eligible residents who seek help with issues related to housing, employment, health care, education, family law, domestic violence, and others. Tens of thousands of low-income people must navigate the civil court system without legal representation, which can have catastrophic effects on their health, safety, and well-being.
