The LSC Grants Home page allows an applicant to either create a Notice of Intent to Compete (NIC) application or view existing NIC and Grant applications.
Before beginning a NIC, confirm that the service area you would like to apply for is in competition. See Service Areas in Competition (available from LSC Grants Announcements and Updates.)
To prepare a NIC requires Applicants to log in to LSC Grants. Current grantees use the email address currently on file and existing password; new Applicants must complete a brief registration process (from the LSC Grant homepage), which requires an email address and other contact information.
Once logged in, from the home page, scroll down to the heading "Service Areas in Competition for LSC Grants" and click the link to create a new NIC
Please note that not all service areas will appear in the drop-down menu; only service areas in competition will appear
