Community Service Grants

CPB distributes community service grants (CSGs) to noncommercial public television and radio stations that provide significant public service programming to their communities. CSGs help stations expand the quality and scope of their work, whether in educational, news, public affairs or other programming—all of which represent an immeasurable value to the American people. Applicant and current recipient stations must each year meet a variety of legal, managerial, staffing and operational criteria for CSG funding.
