The goal of the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) is the reduction of poverty, the revitalization of low-income communities and the empowerment of low-income families and individuals to become fully self-sufficient.
The Community Services Block Grant is designed to help low-income individuals and families: secure and retain meaningful employment; attain an adequate education; improve the use of available income, obtain adequate housing, obtain emergency assistance, including health and nutrition services; remove obstacles which block the achievement of self-sufficiency; and achieve greater participation in the affairs of the community.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services provides Community Services Block Grant funds to the 50 states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa and to Federally-recognized Tribes, State-recognized Tribes and Tribal organizations acting on behalf of eligible Tribes.
In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must characterize your financial situation as either low income, or as very low income.
