Update on 2015 Basic Field Subgrant Application Process

As announced during LSC’s recent Applicant Informational Sessions on May 20th and 22nd, beginning with the 2015 grants process, LSC will launch a new subgrant review process in an effort to more simply and efficiently collect information needed to evaluate: 1) subgrants as a part of LSC’s annual competitive grant and grant renewal process; and 2) annual requests for subgrant approval.

The new process will be available for all subgrants of basic field funds with effective dates starting on, or after, January 1, 2015.  It will be a two-step process.  The first step will be available for completion in LSC Grants on or around, June 16, 2014; and will be due by July 7, 2014 for each subgrant of basic field funds anticipated for 2015.1   As part of the application process, LSC will ask applicants to upload into LSC Grants a draft, or drafts, of the subgrant agreement(s) for which they anticipate requesting approval for 2015.  They will also be requested to upload answers to either the inquiries contained in the attached Form B, for new LSC-funded subgrants, or Form C, for renewal LSC-funded subgrants.

In the second step of the new process, grantees will be required to request approval of their proposed 2015 subgrant agreement(s) at least 45 days in advance of the effective date(s).  However, grantees will not be required to provide to LSC information already provided in step one, if the information previously provided is still accurate at the time of the final approval request.  

Grantees requesting LSC approval for subgrants with effective dates starting before January 1, 2015, are asked to submit applications through the 2014 subgrant application process outlined in LSC’s Memorandum to All LSC Program Directors from Lynn A. Jennings, Vice President for Grants Management, dated October 17, 2013, available at
