Promoting economic security and stability

Community Service Block Grant (CSBG)

Provides a range of services to promote economic security and stability. CSBG may assist with utilities, rent/mortgage, and medication payments. To qualify for the program, clients must bring proof of income, picture identification, Social Security cards for all household members, and proof of residency. Assistance is contingent upon the availability of funds. Call the Office of Social Services for additional requirements/documentation for utilities payment, rent/mortgage payment, and medication assistance payment.

Income Guidelines

Income guidelines since 1982 for the 48 contiguous states and the District of Columbia can be calculated by addition using the figures shown below. (This simple calculation procedure gives correct guideline figures for each year, but it is not identical to the procedure by which the income guidelines are calculated from the icome thresholds each year; see an example calculation.) Before 1982, the income guidelines were issued by the Office of Economic Opportunity/Community Services Administration.
