These plans will support 100% access to effective assistance for essential civil legal needs through court simplification and offering a continuum of services to include information, advice and appropriate levels of representation.
This tool showcases publicly available data to help inform service design and identify collaborative opportunities that best meet the needs of individual counties, while also laying the foundation of future research and evaluation.
