BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Idaho Legal Aid Services has received a $276,000 grant to help create more pro bono opportunities which will go on to help serve some of the state’s poorest residents.

Legal Services Corporations announced the non-profit legal aid had been awarded the grant on Friday.

The money will create an online portal that will allow residents to search for Idaho attorneys providing pro bono services. The goal, according to a news release, is to increase pro bono representation and expand the cases attorneys can volunteer.

Idaho Legal Aid Services was one of 15 recipients across the country to receive funding for pro bono services.
