ABA Military & Veterans Legal Center



The ABA Military and Veterans Legal Center (MVLC) invites applications from legal service providers to apply for a grant opportunity to increase effective legal support to veterans. The MVLC has created the competitive ABA Veterans Legal Assistance Grant available to state and local programs, so they can better meet the legal needs of underserved veteran populations within their communities.

In 2020, the MVLC is accepting grant applications from non-profit organizations with a project based in Georgia that delivers legal services to veterans primarily in Georgia. Up to three organizations will receive grants ranging from $5,000 to $40,000.

Please download the Request for Proposals, which explains who is eligible to apply, the Grant's primary objectives, and other important information. While considering the Grant's objectives, note that we will give special consideration to funding needs associated with veterans' legal problems arising from COVID-19. View an example of the application questions.

Applications must be submitted through the online application system by May 15, 2020.

We are not accepting new applications at this time.
