Iowa Legal Aid
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2011
Iowa Legal Aid provides free legal services to low-income Iowans, helping them use the civil legal system to improve their lives. Resource limits keep the program from fully serving many Iowans who desperately need help. The AmeriCorps Project will place members in Iowa Legal Aid's 10 regional offices. Members' service will greatly expand Iowa Legal Aid's ability to educate, advise, and represent economically vulnerable Iowans, improving their lives, the justice system, and the state.
