Information Sessions 

All new applicants must attend one information session. The information sessions are typically held in October. We advise returning applicants to attend, but it is not required.

Current 2018 LRAP Participants

LRAP participants are required to keep DCBF updated with all current information, including salary, joint income, home address and employment, to name a few. Email all updates to lrap@dcbarfoundation.org.

LRAP participants must certify at least four times a year that they are still eligible for the program. You will receive a notification via email when the link to the online certification form is available, which will be approximately two weeks before the due date. Disbursements will NOT be deposited until we receive your certification and verify that you are still eligible for LRAP. All certifications will be completed through our online system, which is supported by Internet Explorer and Safari.  Questions about the online system can be answered here.
