Community Services Block Grant Programs

The Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) provides core funding to local agencies to reduce poverty, revitalize low-income communities and to empower low-income families to become self-sufficient.

CSBG is a federal, anti-poverty block grant which funds the operations of a state-administered network of local agencies. The Oklahoma CSBG network consists of 18 Community Action Agencies (CAAs) that create, coordinate and deliver programs and services to low-income Oklahomans in all 77 counties.

Community representation and accountability are hallmarks of the CSBG network, where agencies are governed by a tripartite board. This board structure consists of elected public officials, representatives of the low-income community, and appointed leaders from the private sector.
