ATJ Delivery System Committee
View the Delivery System Committee summary, including a brief work plan, membership, and meeting information.
Since its inception, the Access to Justice Board has focused much of its effort on the planning for civil legal aid delivery. The ATJ Board adopted its first State Plan in 1995 in response to congressional restrictions on service delivery and then revised it in 1999. The board again revised its State Plan in 2006 to address new census data and the findings in the Washington State Civil Legal Needs Study.
The ATJ Board's State Plan Oversight Committee (SPOC) completed its 2008 State Plan Implementation Update Report as the financial crisis was unfolding. The ATJ Board determined that this crisis would affect SPOC's ability to continue implementation, and that circumstances suggested the need for a change in the ATJ Board's approach to State Plan implementation. The ATJ Board sunset SPOC and established the Delivery System Committee. This committee has broad representation from the provider, law school, founder, and private bar communities.
In 2015, the Delivery System Committee launched a work group to propose a plan for developing a new State Plan that reflects the current environment. The Committee plans to present a new State Plan to the ATJ Board for adoption by June 2016.
