The state has awarded $8.1 million in grants to legal services providers to ensure compliance with requirements for representation of immigrants outlined by the U.S. Supreme Court in Padilla v. Kentucky, 559 U.S. 356 (2010).
The grants will go to eight groups that will operate regional centers of immigration legal support, assistance, training and education for the attorneys providing mandated representation to immigrant clients in Criminal and Family Court. The state grants, $1.35 million to each group, are being provided over the next three years by the Office of Indigent Legal Services (ILS).
