Economic impact study

WisTAF wanted to quantify the economic benefits our state and its communities receive when people access legal protections.

After all, legal problems can be the only thing standing in the way of economic stability for a person, or an entire family.

We commissioned a study on the economic impact of civil legal aid in Wisconsin, engaging an analytics firm, The Resource for Great Programs, to conduct the study in 2022-2023. It's no surprise the result was impressive.
