About the Kentucky IOLTA Fund

The Kentucky IOLTA Fund was established in 1986 by the Kentucky Supreme Court through SCR 3.830. The program uses the advantage of pooling client trust funds to generate interest in excess of service fees and administrative costs. Attorneys in the program deposit small or short-term trust funds into interest-bearing accounts with the interest being paid directly to the IOLTA Fund. Client funds remain under the control of the attorney who continues to maintain his or her trust account. Interest paid is not included in either the attorney's or the client's gross income.

 

The interest received by the IOLTA Fund is disbursed in the form of grants for legal aid to the poor, local pro bono programs, and other projects that improve the administration of justice in Kentucky as may be specifically approved by the Kentucky Supreme Court from time to time.  The Kentucky IOLTA Fund has awarded over $15 million in grants since 1988.
