CSBG Annual Report Received OMB Clearance

The CSBG Annual Report received OMB Clearance on January 12, 2017. The new CSBG Annual Report marks the largest overhaul of CSBG data collection and reporting since the first comprehensive CSBG Information Survey (CSBG-IS) was developed in 1983. On January 20, 2017, the Office of Community Services (OCS) released CSBG IM # 152 Community Services Block Grant Annual Report which details guidance on the implementation and timelines for online submission of the CSBG Annual Report. Please note, the final document approved by OMB is the same document that was reviewed and commented on during the FRN#2 time period.
