Grants ranging from $500 to $5,000 to New Hampshire nonprofit organizations to strengthen the justice and legal system. Grants will support efforts that encourage innovation within the administration of justice, offer community outreach regarding the law, and enhance access to the legal system.

Justice Grants are made possible through the generous contributions of individuals, legal professionals, and members of the New Hampshire Bar Foundation Justice Society. Foundation donors value the promise of equal justice for all and seek to improve the administration of justice in New Hampshire.

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, but not for ongoing operational costs. 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.
