Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands, Tennessee’s largest nonprofit law firm, has been awarded a two-year, $570,000 Two-Gen grant through the Cycles of Success program, a partnership between the Tennessee Department of Human Services and the Tennessee Alliance for Legal Services with the goal of raising Tennessee residents out of multigenerational poverty.
