Grant to a USA nonprofit, faith-based, or community organization to provide technical assistance and support for a federal accountability network of standards, measures, and performance indicators. Applicants are advised that required registrations must be completed prior to applying. Funding is intended to provide support for identifying and prioritizing the training needs of the CSBG network and to allow for a smooth transition to new or updated reporting systems.
The key focus for this NOFO is the advancement of the CSBG Network through ongoing T/TA to include creating materials (webinars, toolkits, one-pagers, etc.) that address the following T/TA topics:
Collection, analysis, and sharing of data, including collecting demographic data to identify high priority populations and their service needs; analyzing outcomes; tracking the progress toward outcomes to ensure robust results; and create data messaging tools and resources. This includes improving data quality to ensure accuracy, consistency, reliability, and timeliness of collecting and reporting data.
CSBG data messaging, including how to demonstrate the impact of collective efforts, report achieved outcomes, and highlight CSBG success stories to internal and external stakeholders by effectively using CSBG data to communicate compelling stories.
Identifying, implementing, and sharing promising practices and results-driven strategies, including understanding current innovative programs/projects using CSBG resources and/or leveraging other public/private resources.
Mandatory CSBG reporting requirements, including the purpose and use of the State Plan, Annual Report, Accountability Measures, and the National Performance Indicators (NPIs). This also includes using NPIs to demonstrate the impact of programs and activities.
Promising practices for developing and implementing the CSBG State Plan, including meeting the OCS submission timeline and promising practices for engaging local agencies in state planning.
Promising practices for developing the Annual Report, including meeting the OCS and state submission timelines.
Understanding and implementing the concepts of Performance Management, including the Results Oriented Management and Accountability (ROMA) Next Generation (NG) cycle, using output and outcome indicators to track progress towards achieving goals, and promoting continuous improvement of performance management.
Developing comprehensive and effective state CSBG policies and procedures, including bylaws and other governing documents that support CSBG performance goals.
Tripartite board, including the rules and guidance for tripartite boards, structure/composition, selection procedures (e.g., recruiting, selecting, and replacing board members) the roles and responsibilities of board members, training to support active community input through tripartite boards, and ongoing capacity building for a tripartite board to fulfill its functions at the highest level while also benefitting the eligible entity and the community.
