CSBG is designed to provide services that assist low-income people to attain the skills, knowledge, and motivation necessary to achieve self-sufficiency.
Components of the program include:
2020 CSBG POVERTY INCOME GUIDELINES
||200% Federal Poverty Level
Add an additional $746 for each household member
Approach to CSBG services to continue in 2019 & Beyond:
Because numerous customers return every year for services, all programs in 2019 & beyond will be written to better assist all customers to improve or gain stability or self-sufficiency. Providing services to those in most need due to circumstances out of their control and those who wish to participate in case management to achieve self-sufficiency have been the agency priority in 2015 and beyond.
Staff will offer eligible customers opportunities in the form of agency services and community partner referrals. Customers who do not follow through with referrals and obtain tools to progress toward self-sufficiency will be ineligible for services until they can verify progress. Services provided will be incentivized with opportunities for self-improvement through short term training, job-search workshops, financial literacy workshops, volunteer opportunities and mentoring.
