Community Services Block Grant Annual Plan

LOUISVILLE, KY (April 10, 2014) -- The public may inspect the Louisville Metro Department of Community Services and Revitalization’s 2014-2015 Community Services Block Grant Annual Plan on-line now through Wednesday, April 16, 2014.
The Annual Plan outlines service programs and financing provided through Community Service Block Grant (CSBG) funds in Jefferson County. CSBG provides federal funding to Community Action Agencies across the nation that addresses the causes and conditions of poverty at the community level.
Locally, CSBG is administered by Louisville Metro Community Action Partnership, part of the city’s Department of Community Services and Revitalization (CSR). An advisory board with one-third public sector representation, one-third private sector representation and one-third community sector representation makes recommendations to CSR’s Director.
The full Plan is available for viewing by clicking here or visit the website at www.louisvilleky.gov/CSR under “Public Notices and Federal Plans”. Any interested agencies, groups, or persons may submit comments regarding the proposed plan to the CSBG Annual Plan Comment Form, fax to (502) 574-5548, or postal mail to the CSR office at the Urban Government Center, 810 Barret Avenue, 3rd Floor, Louisville, KY 40204 during the comment period now through April 16.
