About this grant

The Legal Resources Trust provides legal support to nonprofit organizations on issues ranging from legal education and litigation to the administration of justice. Past support from Mott assisted the grantee to provide legal and institutional assistance on how to establish, register, and administer nonprofit organizations; assist more than 6,000 people with legal advice and referrals; and train communities on the structures and functions of local government. This grant will support the grantee to continue to assist nonprofits to register as legal entities, provide legal advice and related services to individuals and groups, assist communities to monitor implementation of state programs and demand accountability, and strengthen governance within community advice offices.
