Community Services Block Grant

The purpose of the Community Services Block Grant programs is to assist communities in reducing poverty, revitalizing low-income communities and empowering low-income families to become self-sufficient. CSBG also brings community awareness to the struggles that low-income families face each day through poverty simulations for area organizations.
