A long-standing recipient of Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) funding, LCCAA’s current approved CSBG funding is for program years 2014 and 2015. CSBG remains one of our federal government’s major efforts of the War on Poverty. The federal government delegates responsibility for the program to the state-level. Consequently, LCCAA’s funding comes through the Ohio Department of Development which has oversight of the program for the State of Ohio.

CSBG funding serves as important resource because while there are strict accountabilities for all expenditures, receiving agencies are given discretion to use the funding as is needed locally. Monies are used to support programming, build capacity, and contribute to local initiatives. Here in Lorain County, our CSBG dollars support the following:

Adult Basic Instruction
Community Assessment
Community Development
Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Awareness
Emergency Home Repair
Food Pantries
Technology Training
Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Outreach
Workforce Investment Partnership Agreement
