Request for Comments-LSC Budget Request for FY 2009
The Legal Services Corporation is beginning the process of developing its FY 2009 budget request to Congress and is soliciting suggestions as to what the request should be.
Restrictions on Legal Assistance to Aliens
LSC is terminating a rulemaking it initiated in 2001 to consider broad revisions to its regulation on restrictions on legal assistance. Contemporaneously, LSC is initiating a new rulemaking to consider a proposal of limited scope to amend section 1626.10(a) of this regulation to permit LSC grant recipients to provide legal assistance to otherwise financially eligible citizens of the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands and the Republic of Palau legally residing in the United States.
