Pro Bono Patent Program

The Pro Bono Patent (ProBoPat) program connects low-income inventors who are residents of Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming with patent professionals for patent application preparation and legal services on a pro bono (free) basis.

Eligible applicants are individual Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming residents who have an annual income of three times the federal poverty guidelines or less, and who, in ProBoPat’s sole discretion, would benefit from the program.

For more information, please call Jennifer Rothschild at 303-539-5643, or e-mail: probopat@micasaresourcecenter.org
