Grant Period: 1 year

Eligibility: Non-profit organizations with demonstrated experience and ability in representing homeowners in foreclosure.

IFLA AmeriCorps Fellows receive compensation of at least $45,600 plus healthcare benefits, bar dues and an AmeriCorps education award of $4,725 for a 12 month term of service. IFLA and Equal Justice Works will provide grant funds for Fellows' living allowance and supplemental benefits. For each Fellow, grantee host sites will receive $28,500 from Equal Justice Works and $12,500 from IFLA, to be paid on a monthly cash reimbursement basis.  Applicants must provide at least $11,000 in match funding towards living allowance for each AmeriCorps Fellow they request.    

Additional Selection Criteria:  Organizations that demonstrate a compelling local need, but which have the infrastructure to save as many homes for as many families as possible.
