The Legal Services Corporation (Corporation) published a document in the Federal Register on February 5, 2014 (79 FR 6836), revising Corporation rules. The heading for the table in Appendix A to Part 1611 of this document incorrectly lists the information as the Legal Services Corporation 2013 Income Guidelines, rather than the 2014 Income Guidelines.
