The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is seeking public comment on the revision of the proposed 2019-2021 North Carolina Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) State Plan, which outlines how the state will facilitate the CSBG program
over the next two years.
The CSBG Block Grant is the sole source of federal funding for Community Action Agencies that provide a wide range of services and programs to assist needy families with children. CSBG funding supports projects that:
- Lessen poverty in communities
- Address the needs of low-income individuals including the homeless, migrants and the elderly
- Provide services and activities addressing employment, education, better use of available income, housing, nutrition, emergency services and/or health

DHHS will submit the CSBG State Plan to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Community Services. This draft plan covers the Federal Fiscal Years 2019-2021 and must be submitted by Sept. 1, 2019.
