Increasingly, Community Action Agencies (CAAs) are exploring shared services and mergers as strategies to improve their sustainability and enhance their efficiency and effectiveness.  CAPLAW has prepared this guide to help CAAs and other Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) organizations better understand these arrangements.  The guide includes questions and answers on shared services and mergers, as well as additional resources – including case studies prepared by CAPLAW on CAAs that have shared services or merged (or both) with another organization, as well as information on books and online publications on these topics, and more.
