SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Created and funded by Congress, LSC's 
fundamental mission is to pursue equal access to our justice system and 
serve as the single largest funder of civil legal aid programs in the 
country. With this mission in mind, the LSC Board adopted a plan in 
2012 setting forth the strategic goals that would guide LSC for five 
years, ending in 2016 (``Initial Strategic Plan''). The LSC Board 
updated the Initial Strategic Plan for an additional four-year period 
covering 2017-2020 (``LSC Strategic Plan 2017-2020''). The LSC Board is 
now in the process of updating and revising the strategic plan for an 
additional four-year period from 2021-2024. As part of this process, 
the LSC Board is seeking input from the public and interested 
stakeholders on whether the goals articulated in the current LSC 
Strategic Plan 2017-2020, which is available at https://www.lsc.gov/about-lsc/who-we-are/strategic-plan, are still suitable and timely and 
whether new goals, if any, should be considered. A summary of the goals 
follows.
    The first and primary goal listed in the LSC Strategic Plan 2017-
2020 is to maximize the availability, quality, and effectiveness of the 
civil legal services that LSC's grantees provide to eligible low-income 
individuals. LSC identifies three avenues through which it can best 
accomplish this goal: (1) Continue the identification, validation, and 
sharing of best practices to ensure grantees are most effectively 
meeting the civil legal needs of low-income Americans; (2) continue the 
development and implementation of meaningful performance standards and 
metrics to ensure assessment of grantees in as fair, objective, and 
effective a way as possible while supporting the best possible 
performance of all grantees; and (3) provide legal practice and 
operational support to grantees to further improve the quality of civil 
legal services to low-income Americans and assess and prioritize 
actions to ensure grantees have the training and technical assistance 
required to support grantees effectively.
    The second goal listed in the LSC Strategic Plan 2017-2020 is to

services for eligible persons living in poverty in the United States.
    The third and final goal listed in the LSC Strategic Plan 2017-2020 
is to continue to achieve the highest standards of fiscal 
responsibility both for itself and its grantees. As a steward of 
congressional funds collected from the American taxpayer, LSC has a 
duty to prudently use the resources allocated to it. LSC's goal is to 
comply with the parameters expressed by Congress and conform to the 
highest professional standards of fiscal transparency and 
accountability, both within the Corporation and in its fiscal oversight 
of those who receive funds from LSC.
