If you are arrested in New York City and your bail has been set by the court, the Liberty Fund may post your bail if you meet all of the following criteria:

  • You are charged with a misdemeanor.
  • Your bail has been set at $2000 or less and you are financially unable to post bail.
  • You are assessed as an appropriate client by a Liberty Fund Bail Associate using evidence based risk assessment tools.
  • You agree to participate in The Liberty Fund’s client needs interview and voluntary referral process.

Additional resources for clients

After the Liberty Fund posts bail for a client, a Bail Associate will maintain contact throughout the duration of the pending case. The Liberty Fund can also connect clients with a variety of resources, including:

  • Housing
  • Substance abuse
  • Mental health
  • Education
  • Immigration
  • Entitlements

These resources and services are entirely voluntary.
