NEW! Organizational Standards TA Guide Category 3
Category 3 Community Assessment Technical Assistance Guide - The first of a series of technical assistance guides from the CSBG Organizational Standards Center of Excellence (OSCOE) is ready for download. This guide helps you with the intent and compliance with each standard in the category as well as gives a framework for how to go beyond compliance.
Organizational Standards for Community Action Boards
Discussion Piece - Use this short two-pager on what boards of Private (nonprofit) CAAs can expect out of the CSBG Organizational Standards as a beginning discussion piece for your CAA's governing board. Overall responsibility does not change, but more policies, reports, and data may be coming to the board (or coming more frequently) than previously.
Video Series - View this 10 part series of short (15 minutes or less) videos that walk through the COE-developed CSBG Organizational Standards for Private (nonprofit) CEEs. These videos review each of the 58 Standards and highlight how they relate to the oversight role of a Community Action board. Use the link below to view the entire playlist, though they may be watched in any order, as a whole series or in part.
Organizational Standards Tools for CAAs
Organizational Standards Planning Calendars - A Calendar of Required Actions and Calendar of Board Actions have been developed as a resource for Private (nonprofit) CSBG Eligible Entities (CEEs) to help you internally plan and track what actions must be taken and when.
Updated Agency Self-Assessment Tools - The Partnership has released updated tools to reflect IM 138. There are four tools - a self-assessment and state level tool for both Private (nonprofit) CAAs and Public (government entity) CAAs.
