The US Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS) provides funding for the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG). The Community Services Block Grant provides assistance to States and local communities working through a network of Community Action Agencies (CAAs) for the reduction of poverty, the revitalization of low-income communities, and the empowerment of low-income families and individuals in rural and urban areas to become fully self-sufficient.

For Indiana, CSBG funded activities create, coordinate, and deliver a broad array of services to low-income Hoosiers. The grant’s purpose is to fund initiatives to change conditions that perpetuate poverty, especially unemployment, inadequate housing, poor nutrition, and lack of educational opportunity. Data found here identifies the strength, gaps, limits, and resources available in the community to meet low-income populations' needs.

Community Needs Assessments are conducted every three years and used to develop our strategic plan and other plans that help people to be independent and advocate for those who can't.
