The funds provide a range of services and activities to assist the needs of low-income individuals including the homeless, migrants, and the elderly. Grantees receiving funds under the CSBG program are required to provide services and activities addressing employment, education, better use of available income, housing, nutrition, emergency services, and/or health.
