Organizational Standards

The CSBG Organizational Standards were introduced in 2014 as a way of increasing the accountability and effectiveness of local CEEs across the nation. The standards fall into three groups – Maximum Feasible Participation, Vision & Direction, and Operations & Accountability. According to IM 138, all CEEs will be required to comply with the Organizational Standards beginning in Federal Fiscal Year 2016. As the state association, CSNOW is dedicated to assisting the local network in implementing the standards and provides training and one-on-one support to local CEEs in pursuing this goal.
