What's New at CAPLAW?

 

CSBG and Head Start Crosswalk

CAAs that run Head Start programs are tasked with following two sets of different, yet overlapping, requirements that apply to the funding they receive under the CSBG and Head Start Acts. CAPLAW developed a crosswalk showing the connections between the two sets of requirements to help CAAs better understand the overlap and establish a more integrated approach to compliance.

Developing a Board Training Strategy

Many CAAs understand the need to implement a comprehensive and systematic approach to training board members but lack the capacity to develop a strategy for delivering high-quality board training. This presentation helps CAA boards, as well as individuals and organizations supporting the board, design a plan for providing training and orientation to a CAA’s board members. Learn more.

Watch CAPLAW's Attorney Network webinar series "Legal Issues Unique to CAAs".

In this two-part webinar series, we pose questions and provide answers to help orient attorneys working with CAAs on some of the key legal requirements that impact the way CAAs operate. Rather than delve deeply into any one issue, we will help CAA attorneys spot a variety of CAA legal issues and identify CAPLAW resources that attorneys may refer to when working with CAAs on specific matters.
