Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Training and Technical Assistance (T/TA) Program: Regional Performance and Innovation Consortium (RPIC) - Human Capacity and Community Transformation Initiatives - ACF Region VI

The Office of Community Services (OCS) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) announces that funds will be available for a cooperative agreement for the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Regional Performance and Innovation Consortium (RPIC) Human Capacity Community Transformation



Working within the established CSBG Performance Management Framework, OCS will fund 1 Regional Performance and Innovation Consortia (RPIC) in Region VI, to serve as regional focal points for training and technical assistance (T/TA) to identify, highlight, and support multi-year community transformation efforts that move individuals, families and communities towards improving human capacity, reducing dependency and sustaining self-sufficiency.

These initiatives will emphasize regional collaborative engagement between CSBG-eligible entities, state and local human services agencies, philanthropic organizations, private employers, faith-based organizations, and other community stakeholders.

These community initiatives will be implemented by CSBG-eligible entities primarily using CSBG funds awarded under the CSBG distribution as well as other direct or in-kind resources from participating community partner organizations.

RPICs will coordinate technical assistance plans and provide support in leveraging existing resources and identifying individual, family, and community-level outcome measures based on Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approved CSBG National Performance Indicators.

In addition to coordinating T/TA activities, RPIC grantees may provide financial support for planning and coordination costs associated with community initiatives.

To assure success in community transformation efforts, the grantee may also support ongoing statewide efforts specifically pertaining to accountability and performance management.

RPIC grantees will assist CSBG Lead Agencies, State Community Action Agency (CAA) Associations, and local CSBG-eligible entities in meeting high organizational standards in the areas of consumer input and involvement, community engagement, community assessment, organizational leadership, board governance, strategic planning, human resource management, financial operations and oversight, and data and analysis.
