Why attend

Community action programs are a changing force in their communities. And to receive all that federal funding, you need to follow a set of standards that assures funding sources that you can serve the community while staying in compliance and being transparent.

It takes a lot of work, coordination — and know-how — including a culture of collaboration, accountability and collective problem-solving. And we want to help you.

Join us for this one-day, power-packed overview to explore the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) standards. We’ll discuss how to use the framework to establish, measure and communicate outcomes that matter to your community. Together, we’ll review some of the regulations that you need to know to stay in compliance through examples, stories and best practices. Take back up-to-date and relevant information to implement immediately in your agency.

Professionals on your leadership and governance teams (as well as those delivering services to the community) will benefit from this review as well as those who partner with, receive funding from or deliver similar services.

We’ll start with why

We’ll kick off this interactive workshop with an overview of the regulations that organizations need to be aware of as they comply with the CSBG standards.

Then, we’ll explore what and how

From your community assessment to the tone at the top to your community outcomes, we’ll connect the standards and results.

A major challenge for grant-funded community nonprofits is balancing the focus of fiscal responsibility, internal controls and mission-centric programming and services. The organizational standards include indicators of whether you have a foundation in place to successfully administer the finances, personnel and systems necessary for a sustainable agency that meets its goals and objectives.

We’ll discuss best practices, systems and processes to help you meet those standards. There will be time included for you to ask questions.
