This notice announces that the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Community Services intends to award a single-source program expansion to Community Action Program Legal Services, Inc (CAPLAW) located in Boston, MA in the amount of $50,926. This award will enhance CAPLAW's ability to advise and educate Community Action Agencies on legal issues with regard to effective operation and management. State agencies administering the CSBG program would be provided legal advice. This is particularly critical at this time due to the increased emphasis by funding sources on compliance with federal grants requirements and to changes in laws applicable to Community Action Agencies and programs they administer. CAPLAW would use the increased funding to hire an additional full-time attorney and an additional part-time staff person to handle communications and other administration.Start Further Info
