Application Tools & Templates
The FY 2022 CSBG Tribal Plan & Application Fillable-PDF Tool is an OCS-approved template for a successful CSBG Tribal Plan and application. All grantees are encouraged to use it for their CSBG application submission. Grantees who used the fillable-PDF tool last year had significantly less errors and received fewer requests from OCS for additional information.
Please see the complete list of resources available to support the FY 2022 CSBG Tribal Plan & Application process, including a Training Webinar to help you complete the Fillable-PDF tool.
Please Note: It is important to download and save the fillable-PDF tool to your computer before you open it in Adobe Acrobat to begin working on it. Loss of data will occur if the tool is not downloaded, saved, and opened in the Adobe Acrobat program prior to entering data. Once the fillable-PDF is completed, it can be saved and uploaded directly to the OLDC system.
The CSBG program requires that all first-time Tribal grantees provide a signed letter by the State CSBG Administrator verifying that the State and the Tribe or Tribal Organization is in agreement on the Tribal population and poverty data for the proposed service area.
Download the State Population Data Concurrence Letter template.
