The Glenn County Community Action Department (GCCAD) is the administrative entity for ColusaGlenn-Trinity Community Action Partnership (CGTCAP), which provides direct services and funds subcontractors in Colusa and Trinity County through local organizations to provide CSBG-related program services. GCCAD receives federal funding from the HHS Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) through the California Department of Community Services and Development (CSD) to help fight poverty in Colusa, Glenn, and Trinity counties.
The goal of CSBG is the reduction of poverty, the revitalization of low-income communities, and the empowerment of low-income families and individuals to become fully self-sufficient. CSBG supports a broad range of locally determined services, including employment services, income support/management, and housing assistance. CSBG funding also enables local community organizations to develop long range solutions to revitalize low-income communities, reduce poverty, and develop public/ private partnerships.
The goal of CGTCAP is to maximize the impact of CSBG funding throughout the Colusa, Glenn, and Trinity County regions by supporting anti-poverty programs and services through its network of community partners, which lift low-income families out of a life of poverty and put them on to the path of self-sufficiency.
Proposed programs and services must promote self-sufficiency and/or improve the conditions of residents living at or below 100% of the HHS federal poverty guidelines in any of the following areas: Entrepreneurship/Job Training, Employment Placement, Education or Skill Development, Housing Stability, and/or Low-Income Housing.
Funding will be awarded in the amount up to $10,000 per applicant, per funding year, to improve the lives of low-income residents in Colusa and Trinity counties.
The services are expected to be performed by the selected service providers during the period of January 1, 2022 through December 31, 2023.
- Organizations serving in Colusa and Trinity counties may submit an application for CSBG funds.
- Nonprofit agencies with 501(c)(3) status, local government agencies, and faith-based organizations providing services throughout the counties of Colusa and Trinity to low-income individuals and families whose household income is at or below 100% of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) federal poverty guidelines are eligible to apply.
