Texas Student Loan Repayment Assistance Program

The Texas Student Loan Repayment Assistance Program (Texas SLRAP) is currently funded by the State Bar of Texas and administered by the Texas Access to Justice Foundation (TAJF).  The Texas SLRAP was created by the Texas Access to Justice Commission in 2003 to assist attorneys who choose to pursue careers in legal aid in Texas.

Low salaries coupled with high student loan debt make it difficult or impossible for lawyers to accept employment at legal aid or stay in those jobs long term. The Texas SLRAP is a critical part of increasing access to justice for low-income individuals.
