Mission First Legal Aid Office has been awarded an $80,000 grant by the Mississippi Bar Foundation. Grants totaling $715,000 have been awarded this year through the Mississippi Interest on Lawyers Trust Account Program.
The Interest on Lawyers Trust Accounts (IOLTA) program was established by Order of the Mississippi Supreme Court as a source of funding to provide legal aid to the poor; to provide law related public education programs to the public; and to improve the administration of justice.
The IOLTA grant will enable Mission First Legal Aid Office to continue to serve those in need efficiently and effectively. Since its inception in 1984 the IOLTA program has awarded over $11 million in grants.
