Organizational Standards COE was developed to assist States and local CSBG-eligible entities to set and meet high organizational standards that can be used across the Network. The COE was called upon to develop a product with input from all key stakeholders, and create tools for organizational assessment that can be used by States and local CSBG eligible entities to set and meet high-quality organizational standards and enhance accountability.
Assess organizational capacity and performance in the CSBG Network by facilitating input from Community Action Agencies, State CSBG Offices, RPICs, State Associations, and national CSBG T/TA partners on new and/or existing Organizational Standards.
Coordinate and lead activities related to implementation of Organizational Standards that will ensure that Community Action Agencies have the organizational capacity to effectively address the needs of low-income individuals and communities.
Develop curricula and training materials for tools that will ensure that all Community Action Agencies can be effectively assessed according to a consistent set of Organizational Standards.
Collaborate with RPICs, ROMA Next Generation COE, CSBG Legal T/TA Center, and other CSBG national T/TA partners and stakeholder organizations
Continue to build and enhance the web-based CSBG T/TA Resource Center to ensure that State CSBG Offices, State Associations, and CAAs have access to a web-based shared calendar, T/TA request system, consultant bank, and discussion forums.
Assist States and CAAs to set and meet high performance standards that can be used across the Network in areas such as:
