The local CSBG network’s funding from all sources totaled over $11.2 billion;
More than $578 million from CSBG supported the core activities of the state and local CSBG networks;

Every CSBG dollar was matched by ◊ $18.40 from federal, state, local, and private sources;
Every CSBG dollar was matched by ◊ $5.59 from state, local, and private sources combined;
