Grants for SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:41 Feb 10, 2017 Jkt 241001 these individual service areas have been awarded to South Jersey Legal Services (SJLS) since 2015. LSC proposes to merge the two service areas into one service area and to award one grant for the new combined service area. Doing so will harmonize the grant structure with the current delivery model. DATES: All comments must be received on or before the close of business on March 15, 2017. ADDRESSES: Written comments may be submitted to LSC by email to competition@lsc.gov (this is the preferred option); by submitting a form online at http://www.lsc.gov/contact-us; or by mail to Legal Services Corporation, 3333 K Street NW., Third Floor, Washington, DC 20007, Attention: Reginald J.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The mission of LSC is to promote equal access to justice and to provide funding for high-quality civil legal assistance to low-income persons. Pursuant to its statutory authority, LSC designates service areas in U.S. states, territories, possessions, and the District of Columbia for which it provides grants to legal aid programs to provide free civil legal services. LSC provides grants through a competitive bidding process, which is regulated by 45 CFR part 1634. Since 2015, through the competitive bidding process, SJLS has been awarded funding for the NJ–12 service area that comprises the two counties in the mideastern region of New Jersey, i.e., Ocean and Monmouth counties. During that same period, SJLS has been awarded funding for the NJ–16 service area covering the seven counties in the southern region of the service area, i.e., Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem counties. Beginning January 1, 2018, LSC proposes to merge the two service areas into a single service area and merge the 2018 grants for those service areas into a single grant. The LSC Act charges LSC with ensuring that ‘‘grants and contracts are made so as to provide the most economical and effective delivery of legal assistance to persons in both urban and rural areas.’’ 42 U.S.C. 2996f(a)(3). Merging the two New Jersey service areas will provide an economical and effective delivery approach for serving the legal needs of the low-income population and will harmonize the grant PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 10501 structure with the current delivery model.
