Direct Legal Services

WisTAF’s oldest grant program funds a range of civil legal aid services to clients with limited incomes, helping them resolve major problems in their lives.

Grants to organizations across Wisconsin provided a range of legal assistance — from information and advice to full representation — to approximately 7,000 clients in 2022.

Direct legal services grants are funded by these sources, as available:

  • Interest on Lawyers Trust Accounts (IOLTA)
  • Public Interest Legal Services Fund (PILSF) 
  • pro hac vice fees
  • cy pres awards

You can learn how these fund sources work on our Fund oversight page.
