Pro Bono Transformation and Innovation Grants
The purpose of the Pro Bono Transformation and Innovation Grants is to develop and enhance pro bono programs that serve low-income Floridians to improve the reach, quality, and effectiveness of the services clients receive. The Foundation provides grants for efforts that are:
- Innovative (new approaches or the adaptation of existing, successful approaches) and replicable (the innovation, if successful, could likely be implemented by other legal aid programs); or
- Seeking to replicate successful and effective pro bono models.
Funds for these grants are awarded in two categories:
- $25,000 Innovation Grants that focus on innovations serving unmet and well-defined client needs
- $100,000 Transformation Grants for building comprehensive and effective pro bono systems through new applications of existing best practices
Requests for letters of intent go out in November and LOIs are due back in December. Applicants are invited to submit full applications in January and are due in February. Decisions are made in March, with the grant period beginning April 1 each year.
