The Legal Services Corporation is the single largest funder of civil legal services in the nation. Established by Congress, LSC operates as an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation that provides grants for high-quality civil legal assistance to low-income Americans. The grants are awarded to nonprofit legal aid programs in every state, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories.

Notice Regarding 2015 Basic Field Subgrant Application Process

For subgrants with effective dates starting on or after January 1, 2015

The new process will be a two-step process.
