Within the Applicant Category, the definition of Private Attorney(s), Groups of Attorneys or Law Firms is as follows:

 

A group of attorneys (not a law firm) can compete for LSC grants under two options:
1.it can choose to compete as a non-incorporated body, as long as it complies with the requirements set forth in 45 C.F.R. 1607; or
2.it can elect to incorporate as a non-profit and apply for federal tax-exempt status as a non-profit.

 

If the group elects the second option, the group of attorneys does not have to be fully incorporated and does not have to already have its tax-exempt status to file a Notice of Intent to Compete. However, the group must be incorporated as a non-profit, have its governing body in place and have already filed with the IRS for its tax-exempt status by the time it submits its completed grant application.
