Community Law Project Boosted by Grants from Price Philanthropies and American College of Bankruptcy

Community Law Project

California Western's Community Law Project (CLP) has received two grants to support its legal clinics and legal education in the greater City Heights community and continue its consumer and bankruptcy work across San Diego County.

Price Philanthropies awarded CLP a grant of $40,000 per year over two years, allowing the program to continue its twice weekly clinics and periodic workshops in the City Heights neighborhood, thereby increasing the City Heights communities' access to legal resources.

The American College of Bankruptcy Foundation awarded CLP a $10,000 grant to enable it to continue to offer bankruptcy and consumer law-related assistance for lower-income individuals across San Diego County, including representation by a volunteer attorney when appropriate.

“The ongoing generous support that the Community Law Project receives from the American College of Bankruptcy Foundation and Price Philanthropies help us to provide free legal services to upwards of 1,000 low-income individuals,” said Dana Sisitsky, Community Law Project’s Executive Director. “These funders allow our students and staff to make a difference in the lives of the underserved in our community.”
