The Community Services Block Grant Program (CSBG) is administered by the Department of Health and Human Services-Office of Economic Opportunity in Raleigh, North Carolina. The CSBG Program is designed to help eliminate, reduce, or address the conditions of poverty in Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Dare, Gates, Hyde, Pasquotank, Perquimans, Washington and Tyrrell counties.

The CSBG Program- Family Self-Sufficiency Project allows participants to take control of their lives by becoming independent and productive members of their community. Some ways that a family can become self-sufficient would include:

  • Secure and retain sustainable employment
  • Attain education/vocational training
  • Learn to make better use of available income
  • Obtain and maintain standard housing
  • Build self-esteem and strong work ethics

The agency collaborates and coordinates with other public and private agencies in the counties that we serve. Through such collaborations, the Family Self-Sufficiency Program is able to provide quality services to participants and significantly impact the battle against poverty.
