The Promise of Community Action:
Community action changes people's lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities,
and makes America a better place to live. We care about the entire community,
and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.
Check out CAPLAW's new training module for CSBG
This interactive, self-paced module enables users to learn about CSBG on their own or as part of a group training session, such as a board meeting. We encourage CAAs to use this module with their staff and board members – especially those who are new to Community Action. The module contains 10 chapters on topics ranging from the history of CSBG, to the tripartite board requirements for CAAs, to funding reduction and termination. There are also interactive activities throughout the module to help review and assess what you have learned.
