*MCVP – Community Services Block Grant VISTA
The overall goal of this project is to increase access to anti-poverty community services and programs for low-income families across Montana by developing a streamlined, statewide community needs assessment for all Human Resource Councils across the state. In Montana, an estimated 128,123 of 1,079,864 people live in poverty. Like VISTA, the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) was also created by the Economic Opportunities Act of 1964 to serve the needs of the poorest Americans. Funds are distributed to local “Community Action Agencies” (CAAs), ten in Montana, to support a wide range of community-based activities to reduce poverty. In the last year, CAA’s assisted 72,701 families in 37,640 households living in poverty. CAAs vary in capacity and there is a need to standardize community assessments to ensure an equal and equitable process is implemented for all Montanans. This VISTA project will move Montanans out of poverty by developing a state-wide needs assessment process resulting in more effective anti-poverty programs. Located in Bozeman, MT.
