Equal Justice Works Acepting Proposals for Veterans Projects

Here is a description of the Project (note that positions are contingent upon funding from Amercorps):

Equal Justice Works just released a Request for Proposals (RFP), seeking results-oriented host sites for the Veterans Legal Corps Fellowship Program, an exciting new initiative to change the lives of low-income and homeless veterans through high-quality, focused legal services.  The mission of Equal Justice Works is to create a just society by mobilizing the next generation of lawyers committed to equal justice. We provide a continuum of programs that begin with incoming law school students and extend into later careers in the public service field, and we are excited to launch this program to address the legal needs of veterans.
 
Contingent upon funding from the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), this AmeriCorps program will provide partial funding for up to four attorney Fellows and law students that are to serve at legal aid organizations across the country and provide legal services to low-income and homeless veterans. Fellows and law students will be given the chance to be part of a nationwide movement to close the justice gap for these veterans.

The application link is here.  Proposals are due April 23, 2013.  More information is here, or from  kgravely(at)equaljusticeworks.org.
