State Senator Thomas Morahan announced today that Legal Services of the Hudson Valley and the Legal Aid Society of Rockland County have been awarded $145,725, aggregately, through the RFP process instituted by the New York State Office of Court Administration.  The award is part of $3 million of new funding secured in 2007 for civil legal services.   

Legal Services of the Hudson Valley, a non-profit agency providing civil legal assistance to low-income individuals and families, contracts with the Legal Aid Society of Rockland County to provide these services to Rockland County families. 

“The infusion of state funding will have a beneficial impact on those who cannot otherwise obtain representation in civil legal matters. I vigorously support programs that ensure community access to legal counsel; that foster an environment in which every person is treated with dignity, equality, and fairness,” said Senator Morahan.
