Posted by Maisha Meminger - On June 11, 2013 (EST)

The Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) provides states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, U.S. Territories, and federal and state-recognized Indian tribes and tribal organizations, Community Action Agencies (CAAs), migrant and seasonal farm workers, or other organizations designated by the states, funds to alleviate the causes and conditions of poverty in communities. 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.

The Office of Community Services (OCS) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) announced on June 7 it will support
one 2-year cooperative agreement for a Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Learning Communities Resource Center (LCRC) designed to promote the creation of learning communities within the CSBG Network to analyze Community Action outcomes and identify effective, promising, and innovative practice models to address current causes and conditions of poverty. OCS has identified $400,000 for support of the agreement.
