Community Services Block Grant

Judy Spires, Program Director
The Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Program provides community programming to the three county area. The Neighborhood Service Centers are funded through CSBG. These centers provide information and referral for all of GMN’s programs, and a community forum (Policy Advisory Council) through which low income persons can have their concerns heard. 

The CSBG grant also provides funds for the development of new programs through the agency’s Planning Department. 

The purpose of the Neighborhood Service Centers is to provide any service that is beneficial for a better way of life for low-income, aged, handicapped or socially unaccepted persons. Many services are available through the central office and the various programs therein. However, the Neighborhood Service Centers act as a referral service to other agencies outside GMN Tri-County CAC, Inc. The NSC’s are the most vital part of any Community Action Agency.
