Civil Legal Representation (CLR) Initiative

Funding for CLR will support the provision of free legal services to victims of domestic violence by attorneys who understand how domestic violence precludes many victims from receiving equitable access to the justice system and the powerful and lifesaving resources it has to offer. CLR programs operate to increase the availability of expert representation for victims, which will serve to save lives and promote self-sufficiency among victims. 

Sixteen applicants were selected for CLR initiatives.
