About The Council of State Governments

The Council of State Governments (CSG) is the nation’s only non-profit non-partisan organization serving all three branches of state government. Nationally, they seek to foster the exchange of insights and ideas to help state officials shape public policy and advance the common good. As a region-based forum, CSG offers unparalleled opportunities to collaborate and create problem-solving partnerships. The WIC Special Project Innovation Grant (WSPI) project team at CSG will administer and support awards to WIC agencies through providing technical assistance during all phases of this funding opportunity.
