Community Service Block Grant Information

by

 With the intent of reducing poverty, revitalizing communities and empowering both families and individuals with low incomes who desire to become self-sufficient, the U.S. federal government set up the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG). This federal program is administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The CSBG provides funds to qualifying communities or entities in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Puerto Rico, and Guam. It also provides funds to qualifying entities that are classified as Federally-recognized Tribes, as well as State-recognized Tribes and Tribal organizations which are acting on behalf of eligible Tribes.

 Goals

Community Service Block GrantThis program was established to assist low-income families and individuals with the intent of trying to help them hit the following important personal development benchmarks in order to establish and maintain self-sufficiency:

Sufficient education
Meaningful employment
Adequate housing for their needs
Improved financial management skills
The ability to effectively access emergency assistance programs, such as health services and nutritional assistance
Ability to participate more effectively in community affairs
Removal of obstacles to their self-sufficiency

Programs have no specified length of time. This means it runs until funding is gone. As of this writing, this program has already helped sixty-four Tribes and Tribal Organizations with block grants. As of the Fiscal Year 2015, it had already serviced approximately 15.9 million low-income individuals and 6.9 million low-income families. Figures include 2 million individuals with disabilities, 2.3 million seniors and 4.4 million children.

The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number for this program is 93.569. CSBG does not require matching funds, which helps remove an obstacle to qualifying for assistance under the rules of this program. Funding is a non-renewable one time grant.

Tribes who apply for funding under this program are not competing with other entities. Although the current method for determining tribal eligibility is not specific to Alaska Natives or American Indians, they can still apply. Eligible entities also include Federally Recognized Tribes and Tribal Organization as well as Non-Tribal Entities.

This funding is provided in the form of a one time grant that does not have to be paid back. The funding type is classified as discretionary and there is no recurring base funding for tribes.
