Most of the funding and resources are offered as part of the Community Services Block Grant Program, or CSBG. This is run in partnership with federal government funds as well as the Department of Health and Human Services-Office of Economic Opportunity, which is also based in North Carolina
One of the key components of CSBG is on enhancing Family Self-Sufficiency. This will help individuals become productive, independent members of society and otherwise take control of their lives. Clients will work with a case manager from the community action agency on the best approach to take.
