Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Training and Technical Assistance (T/TA) Program: Regional Performance and Innovation Consortium (RPIC)

The Office of Community Services (OCS) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) announces that funds will be available for a cooperative agreement for the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Training and Technical Assistance (T/TA) Program:
Regional Performance and Innovation Consortium


This cooperative agreement will continue to support an ongoing State, Regional, and National T/TA Strategy for collaboration, capacity-building, and exemplary practice in the CSBG program and among State Community Action Agency Associations, also referred to as State Associations.

OCS will fund 11 Regional Performance and Innovation Consortia (RPIs) to serve as regional focal points to lead in the enhancement of a comprehensive and integrated system of T/TA activities among State Associations.

The central mission will be to ensure that all CSBG-eligible entities are able to meet organizational performance standards and State accountability measures as well as utilize evidence-informed service approaches to address the identified needs of low-income people in communities.

In partnership with State CSBG agencies, RPIs will also support a state-by-state assessment of available T/TA resources and assist each State with developing an annual T/TA strategy for CSBG with an emphasis on compliance with organizational standards, State accountability measures, and performance management systems.

RPIs will institute a regional approach for T/TA coordination and information dissemination for related national technical assistance efforts supported by OCS.
