ROMA & Pathways to Excellence

This website contains information about Results Oriented Management and Accountability, or ROMA, a performance-based initiative designed to preserve the anti-poverty focus of Community Action and to promote greater effectiveness among state and local agencies receiving Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) funds.

Pathways is the Partnership's premier organizational capacity building initiative. Pathways uses 35 Standards of Excellence that define the very best practices for Community Action Agencies. Just as the new CSBG organizational standards developed by the Center of Excellence in collaboration with the Community Action Network define the basic minimum requirements an agency must meet, the Standards of Excellence represent the highest level of management and operational performance to which an agency can aspire.
