Building a better system

Learn about LIFT Dane’s plan to use technology to help people tune up their civil legal issues to improve their financial health.

THE PROBLEM
Approx. 70,000 Dane County residents have civil legal problems that cause financial instability and reduce earnings.

The mission of LIFT Dane is to provide efficient, technology driven legal assistance to clear civil legal barriers to economic prosperity for Dane County families, to transform legal and court systems to prevent economic drags, and to contribute to national reform movements to improve access to civil legal justice. With an online Legal Tune-Up application, LIFT Dane will empower workers to identify and clear up civil legal problems on their own, or with streamlined help from trusted professionals.  LIFT Dane plans to launch its first module to restore driver's licenses in Summer of 2020.
