WHAT IS THE ADMINISTRATION TRYING TO DO? The Obama Administration is set to propose a 50% cut to the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG), the central source of funding for Community Action Agencies in the United States. President Obama's budget will be released Monday, Feb. 14.
WHY IS THIS A PROBLEM? CSBG is the ONLY federal program focused on comprehensive services to fight poverty. If CSBG is eliminated, more than a thousand Community Action Agencies nationwide - including Springfield Partners - will be forced to slash programs, or even to shut their doors.
WHAT CAN WE DO? It is essential that President Obama and Congress hear from communities across America. We need to let our national leaders know that Community Action is important to us!
