Based on an assessment of community needs and the urging of State and Federal level CSBG management teams to move to a long-term strategic focus; the Committee is focusing future CSBG resources on early childhood literacy. Community meetings will be held in March and April of 2015 to discuss ideas for innovative, collaborative proposals to significantly expand early literacy services to children and families who can benefit from them, with a focus on families living in poverty. Once the Committee and Board decide on an action plan for the use of the funds, applications will be solicited. This will likely occur in August of 2015.
