The Legal Services Corporation's (LSC) mission is to promote equal access to justice in our Nation and to provide for high-quality civil legal assistance to low income persons. LSC submits an annual budget request directly to Congress and receives an annual direct appropriation to carry out its mission. For the current fiscal year (FY 2005), LSC received an appropriation of $330,803,705 of which $312,375,183 was for basic field programs; $2,538,633 was for the Office of Inspector General; $12,826,362 was for management and administration; $1,255,010 was for technology initiative grants; and $1,808,517 was for grants to offset losses due to census adjustments. Pub. L. 108-447, 118 Stat. 2809. (The FY 2006 budget request has already been submitted to Congress and LSC is awaiting Congressional action.)
As part of its annual budget and appropriation process, LSC notifies the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) as to what the LSC budget request to Congress will be for the next fiscal year. Accordingly, LSC is currently in the process of formulating its FY 2007 budget request.
LSC invites public comment on what its FY 2007 budget request should be. Interested parties may submit comments to LSC by September 9, 2005. More information about LSC can be found at LSC's Web site: http://www.lsc.gov.Start Signature
