Community Services Block Grant

Community-based nonprofits can tap into an extra $1 billion in funding for the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) -- part of the funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The money is intended to be used to boost the economy by reducing poverty, revitalizing low-income communities, and helping families become self-sufficient. Funds can be used to address needs like housing, education, employment, nutrition, and emergency services.

For more information, see the CSBG website or the state-by-state breakdown of CSBG Recovery Act funding.
