Mission

The Loan Repayment Assistance Program of Minnesota's mission is to ensure that low-income and disadvantaged populations have access to competent counsel. LRAP of MN works to achieve this mission by helping new attorneys who would like to enter into public interest law scale the barrier posed by high education debt and low salaries. In addition, LRAP works to enhance the quality of legal services delivered to these populations by permitting recipients to renew their assistance for up to fifteen years.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

LRAP of MN assists attorneys who obtain full-time employment with a qualifying legal service organization within three years of graduation from law school (with extensions for clerkships and joint degrees). LRAP of MN also permits these attorneys to reapply for assistance for up to fifteen years. Loan repayment assistance is given to attorneys providing direct legal services and advocacy for low-income populations through legal service agencies. To ensure that assistance is provided to the attorneys who need it most, LRAP of MN considers an applicant's adjusted income and debt to determine his or her eligibility and the size of the award. Adjusted income considers the attorney's income from all sources and makes deductions for dependents and day care expenses. To maximize its assistance, LRAP of MN provides its awards in the form of forgivable loans. This enables recipients to receive their awards free of taxes under a special provision of the Internal Revenue Code. Loans are forgiven quarterly, upon a showing that the recipient has used his or her LRAP award to make payments on qualified student loans and that the recipient remains employed in qualifying public interest work.

Population(s) Served

LRAP MN has only one program; we provide education loan repayment assistance to legal aid attorneys with a demonstrated financial need.  Without LRAP’s assistance, these attorneys cannot sustain their debt loads and other family financial obligations on legal aid salaries.  Each year, the attorneys in our program help thousands of low-income clients with their critical legal needs like safety, shelter, access to medical care, and education.
