Grant Description
Cooperative agreement to a USA nonprofit, statewide, local, community, or faith-based organization to provide training related to legal aspects of organizational effectiveness. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for collaborative work that creates pathways out of poverty for vulnerable communities.

This NOFO calls for a concerted and coordinated effort to build capacity, strengthen organizational performance, and increase the impact of CSBG funding and CSBG award recipients by providing targeted and relevant legal T/TA. By design, legal T/TA efforts will identify and focus on organizational, fiscal, and governance challenges. Meeting these T/TA needs will help ensure the success of the CSBG Network.

The award recipient will be required to provide planned and ad hoc high-quality, tailored T/TA and consultation and develop, implement, and disseminate T/TA resources and tools that address the three objectives described below. As needed, the award recipient will develop resources and tools that address the T/TA needs of public and private CSBG-eligible entities.

  • Promoting Promising Legal Practices and Policies
  • Enhancing Knowledge Management, Education, and Training
  • Improving Organizational Stability and Capacity Building

For more information on the focus areas, see page 4 of the NOFO, in Supporting Documents, below.
