  • Change of Address or Name
  • Change of Banking Information
  • Promissory Notes
  • ED Certification Form

Participating attorneys must update their individual GrantEase grantee profile whenever there is a change to personal information, including name, address, phone number and email address, and the participating attorney must notify LRAP@lsc.gov within five (5) business days of making any changes.

Participating attorneys must email LRAP@lsc.gov as soon as there is a change to banking information. Do not provide any banking information in the email. LSC will respond to the notice of change to banking information with instructions on how to properly and securely provide LSC with new banking information. LSC uses direct deposit to make LRAP award payments. Failure to inform LSC of these changes will result in delayed award payments.

Upon selection to participate in LSC's LRAP, the participating attorney will receive an Adobe e-sign request to sign and submit the LRAP Promissory Note. Please respond to the e-sign request within 5 days of receipt. The first payment in the cycle, which will occur on or around September 1, 2021, will be disbursed after LSC receives the signed Promissory Note and an executed executive director Certification of Employment and Good Standing form for the October 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021 time period. Please see instructions on the Certification of Employment and Good Standing below.

GrantEase will send a payment request task to the participating attorney 15 days before the next payment is scheduled to be made. The participating attorney will need to follow GrantEase instructions and send the certification form along to their executive director through GrantEase. Once the executive director has certified employment and good standing, LSC will issue the award payment. Once the payment has been issued in GrantEase, it will take 3-5 business days for the payment to be deposited.
