Opportunity Grants

Funding Urgent Boots-on-the-Ground Initiatives

The American Bar Endowment’s Opportunity Grant Program supports new, boots-on-the-ground, innovative programs and projects that serve the immediate and critical legal needs of the public and are of importance to the legal profession and its concerns for access to justice.

The ABE Opportunity Grant Program funding focus areas include:

  • Increasing access to justice, especially for vulnerable and underserved populations using innovations to legal services delivery, capacity-building, or pro bono service.
  • Improvement of the justice system, including ensuring equal justice and elimination of bias; and
  • Increasing public understanding of legal rights and responsibilities so people can recognize legal problems and know how to address them.

The 2025 Grant Cycle is now open.
