The Office of Community Services (OCS) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) will support one cooperative agreement for the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Learning Communities Resource Center (LCRC).

The LCRC will provide technical assistance to State CSBG Lead Agencies and CSBG Eligible Entities to identify activities and services that improve program outcomes for low-income individuals, families, and communities.

This includes frequently convening learning community groups comprised of State CSBG Lead Agencies, CSBG-Eligible entities, RPIC grantees and other stakeholders to encourage a culture of success, transparency, and partnerships.

The grantee chosen will work to improve the validity, quality, and quantity of T/TA information and resources available to State CSBG Lead Agencies and CSBG-Eligible Entities and assist the CSBG network with implementing CSBG National Performance Management Framework.

Learning communities may focus on specific community-level strategies or individual and family services consistent with the domains for CSBG National Performance Indicators (NPI’s).
