WASHINGTON—The Legal Services Corporation (LSC) today asked Congress for $486 million for Fiscal Year 2015, the same level of funding it requested the year before.

“Our request to Congress balances record-high demand for civil legal aid against the realities of the federal budget environment,” said LSC President James J. Sandman.
