- Organizational stabilization and support for CSBG-eligible entities experiencing significant fiscal or organizational challenges;
- Capacity-building to enhance knowledge and understanding of CSBG requirements, and the ability to address changing legal and regulatory issues affecting CSBG-eligible entities in the Community Action Network; and
