NASCSP 2024 Annual Training Conference | Memphis, TN

The NASCSP 2024 Annual Training Conference | September  16 – 20 | Memphis, TN

The NASCSP 2024 Annual Training Conference is a five-day, immersive experience offering valuable opportunities for state administrators, state associations, local eligible entities, and other professionals from around the country to come together and discuss strategies for meeting new challenges in improved performance, innovation, and accountability in the fight to change the face of poverty across the nation.

Our theme this year is “Beyond the Box: Turning Possibilities to Realities.” We hope you will join us as we think through some of the biggest challenges facing our network, share ideas, and collaborate on solutions that work well for everyone.

NEW! NASCSP is excited to host its first Climate Summit! In a time of increased heat, fires, decreased air quality and billion-dollar weather disasters what is the role for the weatherization assistance program? We will explore these issues through short presentations and group discussions with a goal of developing a vision for the future. Join us for this one-day event (September 17, 2024)!

The 2024 Annual Training Conference is separated into the following two tracks:

The Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) track focuses on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) CSBG initiatives. It also highlights best practices related to anti-poverty efforts, performance management, and performance measurement.

The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) track will provide a wealth of information, tools, and resources to enhance and improve grantee administration and implementation of the program. Session offerings will include fiscal, technical, and programmatic content. The general session workshops will include federal and national partner updates and provide relevant training on important WAP topics. A pre-conference training focused on the implementation of the $3.5 billion dollar WAP Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) funding, will be offered in addition to the core conference and is recommended for all grantee and subgrantee WAP staff.
