Community Resource Coordination Groups (known as CRCGs) are local interagency groups, comprised of public and private providers who come together to develop individual services plans for children, youth, and adults whose needs can be met only through interagency coordination and cooperation.
Community Resource Coordination Groups are locally designed, developed and managed. To ensure basic standards and consistency across the state, both the State CRCG Team (for Children and Youth) and the State CRCGA Team (for Adults) have developed a Model and Guiding Principles. While the models and guiding principles vary somewhat, the overall structure and guidance are the same.
The following provides an overview of the Model and Guiding Principles applicable to all CRCGs regardless of the age or other characteristics of the population served.
Community Resource Coordination Groups (CRCGs) are local interagency groups comprised of public and private agencies. Together, they develop service plans for individuals and families whose needs can be met only through interagency coordination and cooperation.
CRCGs originated when the Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 298 into law in 1987. This bill directed state agencies serving children to develop a community-based approach to better coordinate services for children and youth who have multi-agency needs and require interagency coordination. More recently, communities have begun using this community-based approach to serve adults with complex needs.
