Grant Description
The Office of Community Services (OCS) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) announces that competing applications will be accepted for a new cooperative agreement to create an enhanced nationwide training and technical assistance strategy for community economic development carried out by the Community Action Network. The new initiative will be a three year effort, and will focus on strategies to improve the long-term economic well-being of residents of low- and moderate-income communities. The initiative will focus on the identification, documentation, and dissemination of strategies that will enable the Community Action Network to revitalize communities, develop and rehabilitate affordable housing, promote sustainability and energy efficiency, attract investments, build wealth, and encourage entrepreneurship. The initiative will seek to promote innovation, accountability, and responsiveness to specific community economic development needs that will promote a long term reduction in poverty through the revitalization of low-income communities and the empowerment of low-income families and individuals in rural and urban areas to become fully self-sufficient. Resources provided through this grant may support direct technical assistance projects for eligible entities in the Community Services Block Grant program.
