Basic Field Allocation Process
This page outlines the process by which LSC allocates Basic Field grants. Approximately 2.8% of LSC's Basic Field Grant appropriation are awarded to Native American service areas. The remaining funds are awarded to Agricultural Worker and Basic Field General service areas based on their share of the U.S. poverty population.
