Re: Organizational Standards IM Draft

Date: March 24, 2014

Dear Colleagues:

The development of organizational standards has been a collaborative process across the CSBG Network, and in that spirit, OCS is first providing the attached guidance in draft form to solicit feedback.  Over the next month, OCS welcomes State CSBG Lead Agencies, eligible entities, State Community Action Associations, national partners, and any other interested parties to submit questions and comments in response to this draft Information Memorandum (IM).  Your feedback will allow OCS an opportunity to strengthen and clarify the guidance on this important subject before releasing a final IM.  We appreciate the CSBG Network’s collaborative efforts to date and look forward to ongoing progress in this important effort.

Please submit your questions or comments on the draft IM via email to LaToya.Smith@acf.hhs.gov by April 25, 2014.

Thank you for your partnership and collaboration.
