The Law Foundation of Ontario invites applications to apply for a Measuring Impacts and Progress 2020 grant. The purpose of the Measuring Impacts and Progress 2020 granting is to build the knowledge that will improve justice system services for the people of Ontario. The first method is to support research or activities that address making improvements in the use of data in the justice system. The second is to support empirical research that will help improve how the justice system serves the people of Ontario. 

Grants are made to nonprofit organizations that work to benefit the people of Ontario. In appropriate cases, for the purposes of this call, the Foundation will consider applications that include government, government agencies, legal aid organizations, courts, and tribunals. The Foundation does not provide funding to individuals or to for-profit ventures. Please visit the Measuring Impacts and Progress 2020 webpage for the full criteria.

Between $50,000 and $100,000 in grants are available, and, where the application constitutes a novel or breakthrough innovation that could dramatically improve access to justice and justice sector performance, up to $250,000.

The deadline for applications is April 20, 2020, 5:00 p.m. EST.
