The CSBG Annual Plan is now available for public comment

The public may inspect the Louisville Metro Department of Community Services 2016-2017 Community Services Block Grant Annual Plan on-line now through Friday, May 6, 2016.

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.  An advisory board with one-third public sector representation, one-third private sector representation and one-third community sector representation makes recommendations to Community Services’s Director.

The full Plan is available for viewing by clicking here. A hard copy of the Plan is also available at all 18 Louisville Free Public Library locations ( and at Community Services' office on Ormsby (see address below).  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 Louisville Metro Department of Community Services office at 701 West Ormsby Avenue, Suite 201, Louisville, KY 40203.
