Timelines: Alliance for Equal Justice Timeline

EJC in full swing to save federal and state funding. WA Governor adds $2M to state budget to mitigate federal costs but Legislature cuts down to $1M. CLS restructures remaining legal aid offices into five regions with goal of preserving three capacities (presence, responsiveness to vulnerable populations; statewide support). NJP develops legal intake hotline, Coordinated Legal Education Advice Referral (CLEAR), and starts setting up offices around the state.
