Community Services Block Grant (CSBG)
The Community Services Block Grant provides funding to Community Action Agencies, like Tri-County Opportunities Council to reduce poverty, revitalize income-eligible communities and to empower income-eligible families to become self-sufficient.
Program guidelines limit CSBG eligibility to families having incomes at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines.
The Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) does not provide direct grants to individuals; CSBG does not charge a fee for receiving a grant. If you receive a message offering you a CSBG grant or requesting a fee, please contact the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Fraud Hotline at 1-800-447-8477.
