Community Services Block Grant

Published on AidPage by IDILOGIC on Jun 24, 2005

Possible uses and use restrictions...

(1) States receive block grants to ameliorate the causes of poverty in communities. The block grant approach gives the States flexibility to tailor their programs to the particular services needs in their communities. (2) States are required to use at least 90 percent of their allocations for grants to "eligible entities" as defined in the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Act, as amended; this includes primarily locally-based community action agencies and/or organizations that serve seasonal or migrant farm workers. (2) No more than the greater of $55,000 or 5 percent of each State's allocation may be used for administrative expenses at the State level.
