The Responsive Grants program enables the Foundation to fund ideas generated by nonprofit community groups to improve access to justice. Each year the program includes one round of major grants (up to $100,000) and two rounds of small grants (up to $15,000).

Responsive Grants aim to encourage new ideas, innovations, approaches, and relationships that can help address emerging needs and connect more people to legal information and supports, especially people who are not currently being reached. These grants have provided seed funding for hundreds of innovative projects across Ontario.
