LSC Notice of Intent to Award 2022 Grant Funds

On November 8, 2021, LSC published a list of the grant applicants under consideration for the calendar year 2022 Basic Field Grant awards in the Federal Register. Grants will be awarded so that each service area is served; however, none of the listed organizations is guaranteed an award or contract. The funding estimates may change based on the final FY2022 appropriation. In addition, Agricultural Worker service area population estimates are subject to change based on the Department of Labor review and comments LSC receives during the 30-day comment period.

Compare 2021 allocations with projected 2022 allocations at three different FY22 congressional appropriation levels.
