Community Services Block Grant
The Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) provides funds to alleviate the causes and conditions of poverty. As a Community Action agency, LBCAP receives these funds each year, and can re-grants them to other organizations in Long Beach that serve low-income individuals and vulnerable populations, including:
• Families with children under five
• People with mental health issues
• People experiencing homelessness
• Victims of domestic violence
Programs we fund through the CSBG must provide services and activities addressing budgeting, education, emergency services, employment, health, housing, job training, and/or nutrition. They must focus on helping people achieve increased self-sustainability, improved living conditions, ownership and pride in the community, and strong family and support systems.
As LBCAP cannot be all things to all people, we use these funds to support the work of other local agencies that populations we don’t directly serve.
How to apply
We receive and release CSBG funds on an as-available basis. The amount of the re-grants depends on the funding we receive, which can fluctuate year-to-year. Interested agencies should check for Bid Opportunities on this page to review current requests for proposals (RFPs).
