Public Comment Period for City’s Community Services Block Grant Annual Plan

April 20, 2016

Plan outlines programs and services for Community Action Partnership

The public may inspect the Louisville Metro Department of Community Services’ 2016-2017 Community Services Block Grant Annual Plan online now through Friday, April 29, 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 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 the Community Services’ Director.

The full Plan is available for viewing by clicking here or online at www.louisvilleky.gov/communityservices.

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 Community Services’ office at 701 W. Ormsby Ave., Ste. 201, Louisville, KY 40203 during the comment period now through April 29. For further information, please call (502) 574-6311.

The mission of the Department of Community Service is to improve the quality of life for all residents and reduce poverty.  For more information about Community Services, visit our website at www.louisvilleky.gov/communityservices or call 574-5050 (TDD available at MetroCALL, 574-5000).
