Since its creation in 2000, TIG funding has provided LSC with a remarkable opportunity to explore new ways to serve eligible persons, to help build legal aid programs' capacities, and to support the efforts of pro bono attorneys. TIG has supported projects to develop, test and replicate technologies that improve client access to high quality legal information and pro se assistance. It has also helped programs enhance their overall information technology infrastructure. These projects use a broad range of technologies -- including mobile, cloud computing, big data, and automated document assembly -- to make the delivery of legal services in the United States more efficient and effective.
Through 2012, the TIG program has funded over 525 projects totaling more than $40 million. There have been over 800 applications to the program.
