Region 8 Association

Regional Performance Innovative Consortium (RPIC)

The Region 8 Regional Performance Innovation Consortium (RPIC), is a successful collaboration between the Community Action State Associations who serve all CSBG-eligible entities in the states of: Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming.

The Region 8 RPIC in currently in its sixth year and has been a successful collaboration since its inception. Community Action Partnership of North Dakota serves as the lead. The State Associations continue to build upon the work they’ve completed which enhanced the service delivery and strengthened the capacity of the CSBG-eligible entities across the region.

The Region 8 RPIC has developed a coordinated regional T/TA plan utilizing resources from all National Community Action Partners. The plan for Region 8 includes, but is not limited to: increasing the number of certified ROMA Implementers, ROMA Trainers and Master Trainers; enhancing the capacity of the Region 8 Board of Directors to assist in the successful implementation of the coordinated regional plan; conducting needs assessments, strategic planning, understanding risk assessment, tri-partite board requirements and governance; OMB Super Circular; and outcome reporting on CSBG funding.

All State Associations are committed to leading the charge for the consortium and building on its existing strengths to ultimately empower the low-income citizens across the region. Region 8 has already seen vast improvement in collaboration and information sharing as a result of the RPIC.
