LSC Funding and High-Tech Partnerships Keep Expanding Access to Legal Aid

The website is LawHelp/NY (www.lawhelp.org/ny), a one-stop, legal information Internet portal for low-income New Yorkers that lists hundreds of nonprofit organizations that provide free legal services. Twenty-nine other states and territories have replicated the New York website, and counted more than 15.6 million page views last year.

Because of the exceptional cooperation among legal aid organizations in New York state that led to the creation of the website, the New York LawHelp Consortium has been named one of eight finalists for the inaugural Collaboration Prize, a $250,000 award to be presented to an outstanding nonprofit initiative. The winner will be announced in March by the Lodestar Foundation, sponsor of the prize.
