Victory in Pro Bono Case Led by NYLPI Board Member Douglas SchwarzFebruary 1, 2022
NYLPI’s Pro Bono Clearinghouse connects nonprofits and community groups with pro bono counsel. NYLPI made the connection between Schwarz and co-counsel Michael Rebell.
The next two budget cycles must be approved to include the Foundation Aid formula funding in order for the case to be discontinued. Should those funds be appropriated, the case may continue.
“By any measure, the more than $4 billion increase in Foundation Aid funding is a huge victory. Of course, the victory was far from ours alone. Indeed, the people of New York who elected the current legislature, and the courageous senators and Assembly members who voted for the budget deserve most of the credit.”
