Community Health Law Project (CHLP)

We provide legal and advocacy services, training, education, and related activities to persons with disabilities and, in certain issues, to organizations representing their interests, with an emphasis on those most vulnerable and needy.

The Board of Trustees of the Community Health Law Project (CHLP) has approved the initiation of a low cost Fee-for-Service legal service program to assist individuals living with disabilities and their families. The program will have a sliding fee scale ranging from $125 to $175 per hour, or in certain specific instances a flat fee. The program will have an income eligibility limit of 325% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) which, in 2015, is $38,252 for an individual and $78,812 for a family of four.  There will also be an asset limit of $100,000, excluding the value of their residence and certain other property.
