Important ABA Survey to Complete by December 7

The American Bar Association Resource Center for Access To Justice Initiatives has collected legal aid funding data from all 50 states since 2003. Washington, DC has historically not been included in this data collection. In 2021, at the request of the ABA, the DC Bar Foundation agreed to serve as the “state reporter” for the collection and remittance of legal aid funding data to the ABA, and we are reaching out to you now to gather data for this year’s study. For those of you who participated last year, the questions are identical.

The ABArray Legal Aid Funding Report allows users to access an online array of national civil legal aid funding data from 2003 to the present time. In order for Washington, DC to be represented, the DC Bar Foundation is asking for your participation in the annual survey of data used to comprise this impactful report.

Please check your email (the original communication was sent on Friday, November 18) and fill out the Excel file (ABArray Legal Services Entity Forms). Return the form to DCBF at by December 7. Your response will help estimate available civil legal aid resources to guide and enhance resource development by legal aid funding advocates. If you have any questions, please contact us at

Thank you in advance for your time completing this critical survey.
