Community Needs Assessment and Community Action Plan 2024/2025

The Department of Community Services and Development (CSD) has developed the 2024/2025 Community Needs Assessment (CNA) and Community Action Plan (CAP) template for the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Service Providers network. The CAP supported by the CNA is a two-year plan that shows how agencies will deliver CSBG services. CSBG funds are, by their nature, designed to be flexible. They shall be used to support activities that increase the capacity of low-income families and individuals to become self-sufficient. This is the final version of the 24-25 Community Action CAP Plan.
