Management Participation in Local Initiatives
CWCAC management and field staff participate in a variety of initiatives promoting coordination of services and resource development for local communities. These have included Family Preservation initiatives, W-2 and Job Center initiatives, Local Service Provider Networks and the like.
Community Services Block Grant (CSBG)
CWCAC receives CSBG dollars annually through the Wisconsin Department of Children & Families. Although the CSBG award constitues a relatively small part of the agency's total annual budget, these funds are critically important. While most of our funding (via contracts and grants) is earmarked for specific programs and services, CSBG funds are used to pay administration, operating costs and subsidize programs that cannot operate self-sufficiently.
