The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland recently received a $25,000 grant from the Ohio State Bar Foundation (OSBF).

In collaboration with data scientists at Case Western Reserve University, Legal Aid will use this grant to “create a comprehensive report on the availability of safe, affordable housing for low-income Cuyahoga County residents with a special focus on lead hazards and racial disparities.” This research project will highlight the prevalence of lead in available rental homes and the racial inequalities prevalent in the affordable housing crisis.

The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland was one of seven Ohio nonprofits to receive funding during the OSBF's spring 2022 grant cycle. More than $300,000 in total grant funds were awarded to organizations working to promote the public understanding of the rule of law and fighting to build a better justice system.
