About Us


Our mission is to create a thriving community education, resources, and partnerships that promote growth and economic stability for individuals and families in Shelby County.

Where does program funding come from?

The Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) is a federal block grant administered through the Department of Health and Human Services and the Office of Community and Social Services (OCS).  The CSBG program is a federally-funded grant program created by the Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1981.  In 1998, the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) was reauthorized through the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Act.  Periodically a continuing resolution has to be passed in order to sustain the program.
