Dear Colleague Letter

DCL#: CSBG-DCL-2021-25

DATE: September 1, 2021

TO: CSBG States and Territories

SUBJECT: FY 2020 CSBG Annual Reports Submission Update

ATTACHMENT(S): N/A


Dear Colleagues,

The purpose of this message is to provide the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Network an update on the status of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 CSBG Annual Reports. As of August 25, 2021, 34 percent of states have submitted all three CSBG Annual Reports. We thank you for your efforts to submit the reports by the due date.

The next step is to review the submissions and provide feedback. While OCS has begun reviewing Module 1, OCS is unable to begin the reviews for Modules 2 — 4 until we receive all submissions. Therefore, we request that all remaining states submit their pending modules no later than September 3, 2021 (this is not an extension). All reports that have not yet been submitted are considered past due. [] It is important to note that delays in submissions impact the FY 2020 CSBG Annual Report federal review, the release of FY 2021 SmartForms, and the opening up of the On-Line Data Collection system (OLDC) for FY 2021 submissions.

If you are experiencing any technical difficulties with OLDC, please contact Monique Alcantara and Niki Frazier-Curry.  

The following is the submission status for the FY 2020 CSBG Annual Reports.

CSBG Annual Report

CSBG CARES Supplemental Annual Report

CSBG Disaster Supplemental Annual Report

Thank you for your attention to these matters. OCS looks forward to continuing to provide high-quality services to OCS grantees.
