For the first time in almost a decade, LSC is requesting an increase in the Management Grants Oversight (MGO) budget for FY 2021. Since 2015, LSC has covered its current MGO expenses with a combination of appropriated funds and funds carried over from prior years. LSC projects that we will come close to exhausting our carryover funds by the end of FY 2021 without an increased congressional appropriation. In addition, as funding for Basic Field grants increases, we require additional resources to conduct proper oversight and accountability of the grants LSC awards to our 132 grantees. As a responsible steward of taxpayer dollars, we have an obligation to maintain a robust oversight program.
