Community Services Block Grant Modernization Act of 2021
This bill reauthorizes the Community Services Block Grant program through FY2031 and otherwise modifies the program. The program supports various antipoverty activities, primarily through formula-based allotments to states, Indian tribes, and territories.
In particular, the bill makes changes to the program's administration and leadership; performance measurement; and allotments to states and territories.
The bill also expands eligibility for services and activities funded by the program to 200% of the federal poverty line (FPL). Under current law, eligibility is generally set at the FPL.
