Please note that the eligibility criteria for receiving CSBG funds is income based. As noted in the application, you must include all income in the household. As an example if you are 26 years old and living with your parents (who both work) and a friend lives with them (and the friend works), your income statement needs to include your parents and their friend plus whatever income you have, it is not based on your income alone.
