Grants of up to $5,000 and grants of up to $15,000 to Prince Edward Island organizations and individuals for activities that strengthen citizens' ability to access justice and legal knowledge. Eligible programs are those that will address one or more of the following legal needs:

- Legal needs of seniors, newcomers, and low and modest income Islanders,
- Family law,
- Innovative approaches to legal aid
- Public legal education (with a focus on plain language and priority consideration of the legal needs of the target groups listed above)
- Technology (projects that explore or utilize technology in the delivery of legal services and/or public legal education)

The Law Foundation of PEI (LFPEI) encourages projects that demonstrate:
- Consistency with the Law Foundation’s mandate objectives, vision, mission, and/or strategic priorities;
- Whether there is a need for the project or program;
- Involvement of, and potential benefits to, residents of Prince Edward Island;
- Collaboration between organizations at a local, regional, or national level;
- Sustainability of the project or program;
- Value for money; and
- Availability of alternative and/or matching or other funding.

While each application will be carefully considered, the Law Foundation of PEI may give priority to projects within its mandate that demonstrate collaboration with other organizations and where shared costs have been negotiated. As part of your application, you should highlight any collaborative agreements/partnerships and/or any shared funding agreements that are in place.

While the project might be larger in geographic scope/impact, a direct benefit to those living on Prince Edward Island must be demonstrated.
