On January 23, 2019, Lux collaborated with the Office of Community Services (OCS) to hold the first Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Tribal Network Update Session of 2019. These live, online sessions are hosted throughout the year to provide an opportunity for CSBG Tribal grantees to stay up-to-date on CSBG news, federal updates, available resources, and updated program information. The session summary and the presentation slides are now available to view online.
Lux and OCS continue to incorporate the CSBG Tribal Grantee Spotlight during these sessions. The spotlight provides a space for Tribal grantees to present on their CSBG initiatives, success stories, and challenges during the live update sessions.
Nancy Carnley from the Ma-Chis Lower Creek Indian Tribe of Alabama volunteered to serve as the Winter CSBG Tribal Grantee Spotlight of 2019. The presentation highlighted the challenges the community faced due to recent hurricanes and how CSBG funds were used to assist individuals, mostly elderly and homeless, with emergency shelter and supplies. She shared pictures and stories of the community garden and how their unique state and local partnerships, including the Coffee County Community Action Agency, are an essential part of ensuring their clients are connected to the services they need.
