Areas of Interest Description: 

The Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) is a formula grant that provides funds to States, Territories, and Federally- and State-recognized Indian tribes/tribal organizations so that they may provide supportive services and activities to assist lowincome individuals and families to become self-sufficient. Typically, States fund these services by making sub-grants to locally based Community Action Agencies and other eligible entities that provide services to low-income individuals and families.

Services typically assist with childcare, employment, education, emergency services, healthcare, housing, nutrition, transportation, youth development, and coordination of resources and community participation.
