Expanding access to civil legal services in Wisconsin.

WisTAF

OUR MISSION

The Wisconsin Trust Account Foundation Inc. (WisTAF) is dedicated to equal access to the civil justice system, funding legal services for low-income persons through the fair and effective administration of Interest On Lawyers' Trust Accounts (IOLTA), Public Interest Legal Services Fund (PILSF), and other sources.

Funding

Grant funds administered by WisTAF currently come from two main sources: the Interest on Lawyers Trust Accounts (IOLTA) program and the Public Interest Legal Services Fund (PILSF) program. The IOLTA and PILSF programs were established by the Wisconsin Supreme Court to make Wisconsin’s justice system accessible to all, regardless of income. The IOLTA program is supported by participating financial institutions across the state, while all practicing Wisconsin attorneys and judicial members support the PILSF program with an annual contribution.

Occasionally, WisTAF administers funds from other sources such as Domestic Violence and Sexual Abuse Civil Legal Services State Appropriation on behalf of the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families and the Bank of America Settlement. 

While WisTAF's funding is significant, it falls short in addressing the justice gap that exists for Wisconsin’s low-income population.
