The Non-Profit Legal Assistance Project
Non-Profit Legal Assistance Project (NLAP) provides legal, human resources and risk management services on an annual basis for an all-inclusive flat fee of $3,000 exclusively to nonprofit organizations. NLAP has been providing services to Palm Beach County nonprofit organizations since 1998.

Participating agencies will also have unlimited access to an experienced human resources generalist.
NLAP will also provide legal assistance to agencies on a variety of risk management issues, provide comprehensive assistance in the area of human resources management, including development of policies and procedures, and provide guidance with board governance issues. In addition, participating agencies will receive unlimited legal assistance with contracts and leases, including drafting and negotiating legal documents, and disaster preparedness and recovery-related services.
Participating agencies also have access to unlimited and compressive in-house training programs, including harassment (supervisors and staff), supervisor training, legal interviewing, discipline and termination training, abuse reporting, board governance, and wage and hour compliance training.
