About CSBG (Community Services Block Grant Program)
The Community Services Block Grant Program (CSBG) provides extensive case management services to low-income families in order for them to become more self-sufficient and overcome poverty. The program seeks to ensure that its participants work towards the goal of bettering themselves so that they become productive citizens of the workforce and are able to seek and obtain employment. The program also teaches its participants how to build character as well as money management through budgeting workshops and sessions.
The Self Sufficiency Project
The core of the project is based on the concept that stabilizing families for the long term, not just meeting immediate needs, is essential for reducing poverty. The most effective and efficient way to provides services to low-income people is through coordinated and consolidated efforts of all the resources available: human services agencies, religious institutions, schools, businesses, and government agencies. Job training, education, and counseling are among the available intermediate an long-term strategies. Participants in the program must be 18 years of age or older.
