The Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) is a federal, anti-poverty block grant which funds the operations of a state-administered network of local agencies. This CSBG network consists of more than 1,100 agencies that create, coordinate and deliver programs and services to low-income Americans in 96 percent of the nation’s counties. Harlan County CAA provides services through Community Service Block Grant (CSBG) funding to children, adults, elderly and all persons with disabilities whose incomes are at or below 150% of the current Federal Poverty Income Guidelines. CSBG provides funds for direct services and programs that indirectly and directly address the needs of low-income, elderly, disabled and disadvantaged that are not being met by other programs. CSBG goals and objections are developed by direct input from the low-income population.
Harlan County CAA Outreach Office will assist clients with the following services:
- Emergency Services
- Income Management
Most Harlan County CAA-operated programs have income eligibility guidelines that are based on the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines which are posted annually in the Federal Register. To view the 2016 Federal Poverty Guidelines table, visit the 2016 Poverty Guidelines here.
This project is funded, in part, under a contract with the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services with funds from the Community Services Block Grant Act of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
