22VAC40-901-70. Designation of a Locality or Group of Localities As a Community Action Agency.

If no existing community action agency or other community organization is willing and able to provide services, a locality or group of localities can request that the department designate one or more localities as a community action agency. Any locality or group of localities wishing to become a community action agency are strongly encouraged to contact the department and request technical assistance in this process. This request must include the following documentation:

1. A description of the efforts made to obtain services through an existing community action agency or a community organization that could have been designated as a community action agency.

2. A resolution adopted by the locality or each of a group of localities requesting that it be designated as a community action agency. In adopting the resolution, the governing body or bodies must have allowed the opportunity for public comment.

3. A resolution adopted by the locality or each of a group of localities establishing a community action board that meets the requirements of federal and state law related to public community action agencies.

4. A plan for providing CSBG-funded services within the proposed service area. This plan must have been developed with input from a variety of sources including the low-income population of the proposed service area.
