Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Program

Our mission is to provide opportunities through a variety of programs for low-income persons to work toward self-sufficiency and build positive self-esteem.

The federal Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1981 created the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Program. It provides a range of services designed to assist low-income households to obtain the skills, knowledge, and motivation necessary to achieve self-sufficiency. The federal grant program permits a wide range of local activities to assist participants in education, housing, emergency services, community involvement, referral, and income management.

The goal of the CSBG program is to reduce and/or prevent poverty through community-based educational activities, which lead to a greater degree of self-sufficiency for low-income households.
 

Community


GLEAMNS has been able to utilize the CSBG funds to assist in the development of linkages with other agencies in order to better serve the clients and the communities. Agencies include local housing authorities, local health services, schools, utility companies, United Way groups, and other groups and organizations. Services are available through the GLEAMNS CSBG Main Office (Brewer Annex) and outlining counties.

Case Management is designed to provide assistance to socio-economically challenged adults in becoming self-sufficient and improving their quality of life.

The Youth Leadership Program is designed to provide educational opportunities to income-eligible students with the purpose of encouraging life and leadership skills. The program focuses on promoting academic, behavioral, and social achievement in today’s youth. Students participate in field trips, computer lab, and workshops held by community leaders. Students are also taught the Character Counts curriculum in order to enhance both their leadership and social skills. Those who complete YLP will be able to describe how good character aids in the attainment of their goals, emotional health, and healthy relationships. Moreover, students will be able to demonstrate critical thinking, decision-making, and problem solving skills.

To participate in YLP, students must be between the ages of 12-18 and attend schools in the Greenwood School Districts.  Enrollment in YLP is open throughout the year, so income-eligible students can enroll during the school year and even during the summer months.
