Community Services Block Grant (CSBG)

The CSBG program is a federal anti-poverty program administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. CSBG funds provide assistance to local communities, working through a network of community action agencies and other neighborhood organizations, for the reduction of poverty, the revitalization of low-income communities, and the empowerment of low-income families and individuals, to become fully self-sufficient.

In Oregon, the CSBG Program funds a portion of the administrative and program activities of Community Action Agencies. These organizations typically coordinate and administer a variety of services to assist low-income Oregonians within their own communities, in both rural and urban areas of Oregon, and serve as key partners to Oregon Housing and Community Services.
