Applying for a grant: what you need to know
The Law Foundation of Ontario invites applications for its Responsive grants program.
Responsive grants enable The Law Foundation of Ontario to fund ideas generated by nonprofit community groups to improve access to justice. Responsive grants aim to encourage new ideas, approaches, and relationships that can help address emerging needs and connect more people to legal information and supports, especially people who are not currently being reached.

Eligibility to apply
Note that the Foundation provides an annual comprehensive grant to each Ontario Faculty of Law. The grants fund projects and programs that fall within the Foundation’s funding guidelines including providing experiential learning for students, responding to access to justice needs of vulnerable communities, and fostering diversity in the legal profession. As such, and since the Foundation has been experiencing reduced revenues, it generally does not provide additional funding for law school initiatives.
