The FY 2014 data for the CSBG Report to Congress was gathered by the Community Services Block Grant Information System (CSBG IS) survey, administered by the National Association for State Community Services Programs (NASCSP). The states, including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, provided information about the level and uses of CSBG funds, their activities, and the number and characteristics of families and individuals participating in CSBG initiatives.1 In addition, data were included on Tribal Uses of Direct CSBG Funds.

HHS conducted evaluations of state compliance among all states during the reporting period through: (1) a state-by state survey, and (2) in-depth state assessments on the use of CSBG funds in the states of California, Hawaii, Illinois, Ohio, and Oklahoma. Unless otherwise specified, data provided span the period of FY 2014 only.

The Appendices of the report provide more extensive information on the FY 2014 State Assessments and data pertaining to CSBG uses of funds, services, and client characteristics.
