Community Services Block Grant Directives

Role Of The Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED)

DCED administers the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) program within the Commonwealth. The federal monies are received through DCED and allocated to local agencies based upon a formula.  Directives are issued by the Commonwealth as a standardized method of communicating policies, procedures and similar information to the local agencies in the operations and execution of their programs and services.


New Directives were issued in November 2019 and may be downloaded.


These Directives have not been modified and remain in effect.
