Dear EDs and LSC Colleagues,
I am pleased to let you know that Sens. Cornyn (R-TX), Murphy (D-CT), Sullivan (R-AK) and Durbin (D-IL) sent a bipartisan letter today to the Senate Appropriations Committee in support of LSC’s request for an additional $50 million to enable our grantees to confront the enormous challenges resulting from COVID-19. The House Caucus on Civil Legal Aid sent a similar bipartisan letter to the House Appropriations Committee on April 8. You can find links to the letters below. We are working to have this included in the next economic stimulus package currently under discussion in Congress and will keep you apprised as the process moves forward.
