Tools & Templates
Below are fillable-PDF tools, pre-formatted templates, and several tool guides to help you with every step of the CSBG application process.
The FY21 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 FY21 CSBG Tribal Plan & Application process, including a Tool Guide and 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 FY21 CSBG Tribal Plan & Application Tool Guide provides step-by-step instructions for completing a FY21 CSBG Tribal Plan & Application using the CSBG Tribal Plan Fillable-PDF form.
