YCAN works to increase the capacity of local agencies working with clients living in poverty.
Park and Hot Springs County have numerous organizations providing intensive case management, whole family approach therapy, one-stop centers, or getting ahead classes.
Each spring YCAN offers an RFP for these organizations to apply for CSBG funding to provide financial assistance to low-income clients, however, the grant requires a great deal of information on each client helped with CSBG funds so many of these organizations have partnered with YCAN to collect the information for the client file and process payments for their clients that are eligible.
We require this Community Partnership Agreement to participate. Each organization participating provides its clients with case management, fills out an online application for the client, and uploads all documents prior to submitting them to YCAN for review. In return we determine if the client is eligible for CSBG financial assistance and have our processing center in Cheyenne process payments each Friday for eligible clients.
If you are interested in becoming a community partner organization, please fill out this form so we can document our partnerships to our funders!
