Office of Economic Opportunity. Project Advisory Group
The Project Advisory Group was established in 1967 as an advisory group to the Office of Legal Services (OLS) of the OEO. PAG served as the voice of legal services organizations, lawyers, paralegals, staff and clients. The original members were hand-picked by the OLS and consisted primarily of project directors. By the early 1990s, almost all federally funded legal services programs were members of PAG. Funding for PAG grew increasingly problematic, and in 1998, PAG merged with the National Legal Aid and Defender Association (NLADA).
