SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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 2007), LSC received an appropriation of $348,578,000, of which $330,760,500 was for basic field programs, $2,970,000 was for the Office of Inspector General, $12,743,000 was for management and administration; and $2,104,500 was for technology initiative grants. Revised Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2007, Public Law 110-5, 20918, 121 Stat. 8, 44 (2007). (The FY 2008 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. OMB has requested this information by September 10 of this year. Accordingly, LSC is currently in the process of formulating its FY 2009 budget request.

LSC invites public comment on what its FY 2009 budget request should be. Interested parties may submit comments to LSC by September 1, 2007. More information about LSC can be found at LSC's Web site: http://www.lsc.gov.
