Why attend

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

It takes a lot of work and 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 Service Block Grant (CSBG) standards. We will discuss how to use the framework to establish, measure and communicate outcomes that matter to your community. Together we will review some of the regulations 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. Those who partner with, receive funding from, or deliver similar services.


Let’s start with why!

Kick off this interactive workshop with an overview of the regulations organizations need to be aware of as they comply with the CSBG Standards.

Then we will explore what and how!

From your community assessment, to the tone at top, to your community outcomes, we will 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 or not 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.

Let’s discuss best practices, systems, and processes to help meet these standards. Included in the day will be time for your questions.

Learning objectives:

  1. Explore the way you approach the organizational standards.
  2. Identify what is working well to meet the standards
  3. Review where you have opportunities for improvement.
