45 CFR Parts 1610—Use of Non-LSC Funds and 1630—Cost Standards

This proposed rulemaking would revise LSC regulations addressing the use of non-LSC funds by LSC recipients and the requirement that recipients maintain program integrity with respect to other entities that engage in LSC-restricted activities (Part 1610), and also providing cost standards for LSC grants and permiting LSC to question costs when a recipient uses non-LSC funds in violation of LSC rules (Part 1630). LSC proposes technical and stylistic updates to both rules without any substantive changes.
