Legal Services Grants

Recognizing that children have special legal needs, and that those needs were going largely unmet, The Florida Bar Foundation began funding special annual grants for legal assistance to children in the early 1990s. The Foundation’s priorities for its Children’s Legal Services grants include representation of foster youth and access to special education, medical, developmental and mental health services that are required under law. Gifts from attorneys to the Foundation from the Children’s Legal Services campaign on the annual Florida Bar fee statement help support these grants, along with proceeds from the Kids Deserve Justice license plate initiative. More than 40 percent of the funding available for Children’s Legal Services grants comes from donations. In 2017-18, the Foundation granted $993,720 to 14 Children’s Legal Services projects, including both statewide and local programs.
