|(a) General Board Requirements.
(1) The Coats Human Services Reauthorization Act (Public
Law 105-285) addresses the CSBG program and requires that Eligible
Entities administer the CSBG program through a tripartite board. The
Act requires that governing boards or a governing body be involved
in the development, planning, implementation, and evaluation of the
programs serving the low-income sector.
(2) Federal requirements for establishing a tripartite
board require board oversight responsibilities for public entities,
which differ from requirements for private organizations. Where differences
occur between private and public organizations, requirements for each
entity have been noted in related sections of the rule.
(b) Each CSBG Eligible Entity shall comply with the
provisions of this rule and if necessary, the Eligible Entity's by-laws/Certificate
of Formation/Articles of Incorporation shall be amended to reflect
compliance with these requirements.
