All Grant Programs

The NJBLF grant program consumes the lion’s share of the NJBLF budget. It has provided grants to hundreds of worthy applicants during the past decade.

The New Jersey Bankruptcy Lawyers Foundation (NJBLF) continues to help those in the community we serve with our longstanding grant program, support of local law school clinic programs and the newly developed grant program helping our own community who are in need. Learn more or apply here.

The New Jersey Bankruptcy Lawyers Foundation is pleased to announce the implementation of its Emergency Grant program, aimed at dispersing funds to applicants on an emergent basis to assist them in the payment of their overdue, necessary bills and invoices for items such as heating oil, medical bills, automobile repairs, etc.

The NJBLF provides substantial support for the Foreclosure Clinic at Seton Hall Law School where students receive financial support to help them with their education while, at the same time, those students provide assistance to those who potentially could be losing their homes.
