Supplemental Funding Awards Made Available
The Legal Services Corporation (LSC) has made
in funding awards available to its grantees following the inclusion of an appropriation of that amount in the (CARES) Act. Its COVID-19 response grant, accounts for more than
of this funding, with the remaining
being provided to help grantees expand teleworking capacity.
LSC is now seeking a further $50 million in supplemental funding, and
NLADA has written a letter
to members of Congress in support of this request. The letter is also signed by the current and previous chairs of NLADA's Corporate Advisory Committee, and follows a similar letter sent prior to the passage of the CARES Act.
