What does it mean to be a Prime Partner?

Prime Partner banks have increased the value of their partnership with the DC IOLTA program by paying higher yields on IOLTA accounts to support the legal services safety net in the District of Columbia. The Prime Partner Program will recognize those banks that choose to go above and beyond the eligibility requirements of the revised Rule to support the DC IOLTA program in its mission to ensure that low-income persons in the District of Columbia have access to critically needed legal aid by designating them as DC IOLTA’s Prime Partner Institutions.
