Community Action Agency
In addition to administering the Continuum of Care competition, the CAP Solano JPA also serves as the Community Action Agency for Solano County, administering funds through the Community Services Block Grant Program.
The CSBG program is intended to revitalize low-income communities, reduce poverty, and empower low-income households through grants passed through the states. CSBG is implemented locally through a network of community action agencies and other neighborhood-based organizations under the principle of community self-help. Activities under the CSBG program include strengthening community planning and coordinating an array of agencies and groups, organizing a range of services, implementing services and strategies, maximizing participation, and broadening the resource base.
The CAP Solano JPA also works closely with the Tripartite Advisory Board (TAB) which provides community insight and input for funding decisions. For more information regarding the TAB, please see the Tripartite Advisory Board page.
Community Action Plan
The 2016-2017 Community Action Plan (CAP) serves as a two-year roadmap for how the Community Action Partnership of Solano, Joint Powers Authority (CAP Solano JPA) plans to deliver Community Services Block Grant (CSBG)-funded services.
The CAP identifies and assesses poverty related needs and resources in the community and establishes a detailed plan, goals, and priorities for delivering those services to individuals and families most affected by poverty.
CSBG funds may be used to support activities that assist low-income families and individuals, homeless families and individuals, migrant or seasonal farm workers and elderly low-income individuals and families by removing obstacles and solving problems that block the achievement of self-sufficiency.
The 2016-2017 Community Services Block Grant / National Performance Indicators Community Action Plan Projections is a series of charts summarizing CAP Solano JPA’s priority objectives and specific outcome goals. CAP Solano JPA will use these objectives and goals to prioritize CSBG funding allocation over the next two years.
