  • Understand the foundational concepts that will help local agencies and the entire CSBG network increase their performance measurement and management capacity so that the Community Action National Goals are accomplished.
  • Recall and describe the basic elements of the Results Oriented Management and Accountability (ROMA) principles and practices

This specific training is designed to help a facilitator consider the content in relationship to the information needs of the Board.  For example, this module would be helpful to the Board as they are considering their next Community Needs Assessment (CNA), or when they are doing their annual review of their current CNA.   It can also be useful if any of the Organizational Standards related to the CNA were unmet.
