Justice Grants Program

New Hampshire (NH) Bar Foundation

Agency: Foundation

GrantWatch ID #164918

Grant Description

Grants of up to $8,000 to New Hampshire nonprofit organizations for activities to improve the justice and legal system. Funding is intended to support projects that offer community outreach regarding the law, foster innovation within the administration of justice, and enhance access to the legal system.

The Bar Foundation is particularly interested in funding projects that:

  1. Envision new ways to create equal justice for all people
  2. Develop concrete innovations in the delivery of legal services, court operations, legal education or in other justice-related areas 
  3. Address legal needs or projects which are important in a democratic society, but that may go against public or political sentiment
  4. Bring together diverse resources and people to find solutions to justice-related problems
  5. Build public confidence in the justice system

Justice Grants are available for start-up costs, planning and research, or for funding to help stabilize new programs. The Bar Foundation is committed to promoting creative thinking and innovation in the short term, but encourages the development of federal, state, local, and community funding in the long term for projects that demonstrate success.
