Community Services Block Grant Training and Technical Assistance Program-Strengthening the Capacity and Ability of CSBG Eligible Entities to Address Legal Issues

The Office of Community Services (OCS) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) announces that competing applications will be accepted for a new cooperative agreement to create an enhanced nationwide training and technical assistance strategy for strengthening and expanding the capacity


and ability of CSBG-eligible entities to deal with legal issues, especially those dealing with the financial management and governance of their agencies funded under the CSBG program.

This one year cooperative agreement will support a national technical assistance strategy to help CSBG-eligible entities address legal issues in three major focus areas:
1) Organizational Stabilization and Support for CSBG-eligible entities experiencing significant fiscal or organizational challenges; 2) Capacity Development to address changing legal and regulatory issues affecting CSBG-eligible entities in the Community Action Network, and 3) Promotion of Exemplary Legal Practices and Policies related to legal services that help promote innovation, accountability, and responsiveness to specific community needs related to the reduction of poverty, the revitalization of low-income communities, and the empowerment of low-income families and individuals in rural and urban areas to become fully self-sufficient.

Resources provided through this cooperative agreement may support direct technical assistance projects for Community Action Agencies as well as creation of an enhanced infrastructure to help OCS prepare to address long-term technical assistance needs of the Community Action Network.
