CSBG Community Needs Assessment on Poverty
As a Federal requirement, the Park County Tripartite Board must approve and issue a Community Needs Assessment Report to the communities in their service area every three years. This assessment is used for project planning. Below you will find the most recent report issued along with the COVID-19 addendum to the assessment.
CSBG Organizational Standards
The CSBG Organizational Standards are a comprehensive set of standards. The Organizational Standards are organized into three thematic groups comprising nine categories and 58 private, nonprofit entities. The purpose of the organizational standards is to ensure that all agencies have the appropriate organizational capacity in critical financial and administrative areas and areas of unique importance to the Community Action network’s mission.
- CSBG agencies in Wyoming must be meeting at least 70% of the Organizational Standards to comply with their contract.
- YCAN’s final Organizational Standards review for FFY2020 shows YCAN meets 54 of the 58 Organizational Standards, or 93.10%, for private entities!
