Dear Colleagues,

The purpose of this letter is to provide an update for the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Annual Reports, including the CSBG Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Supplemental Annual Report and the CSBG Disaster Supplemental Annual Report.

Due Date Extension for Supplemental Annual Reports

Thank you to everyone who has begun submitting their CSBG Annual Reports. Over the past few weeks, OCS received requests from states for an extension for the Supplemental Annual Reports. After consideration, OCS extended the due date for the CSBG CARES Supplemental Annual Report and CSBG Disaster Supplemental Annual Report to July 30, 2021.

The regular CSBG Annual Report is still due June 30, 2021.

Webinars

OCS also received questions about the CSBG CARES Supplemental and CSBG Disaster Supplemental Reports. To assist with this, OCS recorded a webinar, which can be found on the OCS webinar page.

Additional webinar recordings, and the associated PowerPoint slides are also available on the OCS webinar page.
