Proposed Organizational Standards and
The Partnership is pleased to announce that the Proposed Organizational Standards and Implementation Framework was delivered to the Office of Community Services on July 10, 2013. Thank you to the Community Action Network for your time and efforts that fed into this process.
As we state in the final document, “The process of creating the Standards has been a national undertaking of the Community Action Network, on a scale not seen since the Monitoring and Assessment Task Force in the mid-1990s. Thanks to improved internet and video technology, the Standards project has reached more members of the Network and allowed them to participate more fully than in past national efforts. The Network’s investment of time and energy has been enormous, when seen in light of the still record levels of consumer and community needs, as well as funding cuts.”
The work of the CSBG Working Group has been tremendous and we thank them for the numerous hours and tireless dedication to this work.
We are now able to accept new memberships and renewals online.
