Thank Your State Senator for Supporting Civil Legal Aid
The Massachusetts State Senate included $49 million for civil legal aid in its Fiscal Year 2024 budget recommendations—the full amount requested by the EJC and the Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation (MLAC). We are grateful for this essential investment, as current demand for legal aid services is extraordinarily high.
