Court aid offered for non-English-speaking, pro se litigants

July 16, 2015

Court improvement grants of up to $50,000 are available to assist unrepresented litigants and those with limited English proficiency.

Grants through the Supreme Court Division of State Court Administration can be used for initiatives from installing video court interpreting systems to purchasing “I Speak” cards that display a number of languages. Grants also may be used to help courts develop and staff programs that streamline and organize cases involving pro se litigants.

Applications for grants are due by 4:30 p.m. July 31. Information about the court reform grants is available here
