INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Supreme Court has awarded $450,000 in grants that will pay for court reforms such as helping people not fluent in English get legal aid.

The funding that's being directed to the 15 counties, five pro bono districts and one committee is intended for reforms in two primary categories.

One effort will help courts in the chosen counties better manage the increasing caseload of people involved in lawsuits who don't have legal representation.

The grants' other aim is to help people who don't speak fluent English get legal aid.

Since 2008, the state Supreme Court has awarded more than $2.4 million in grant funding to nearly 100 trial courts and judicial agencies for a wide variety of court-related improvements and reforms.
