Lessons Learned

Since 2016, the JFA initiative has awarded over $2 million in grants to 14 states to develop and implement comprehensive, statewide action plans with the goal of achieving 100-percent access to effective assistance for civil legal needs. The first cohort of seven states began their JFA journey in 2016 (in orange), followed by four more in 2018 (in purple) and three in 2019 (in green). This interactive map provides information on the status of each JFA grantee, as well as the strategic plans and lessons learned from the early JFA cohorts.
