IL-AFLAN Receives Major McCormick Foundation Grant
The IEJF is excited to announce that for the third year in a row the Robert R. McCormick Foundation’s Veterans Program has awarded a grant in support of the Illinois Armed Forces Legal Aid Network (IL-AFLAN). This support is critical to IL-AFLAN and was particularly needed this year due to the decline in revenue from filing fees, which is the primary source of funding for the network.
As in years past, this grant will be nearly entirely allocated to covering the costs of direct legal services to current and former members of the military. IEJF is grateful for this partnership with the McCormick Foundation to help more Illinois service members resolve legal issues that threaten their safety, health and independence.
