Agency Profile

Community Action Programs began under the authority of the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, which provided local communities with the opportunity to identify problems of low-income people and to develop programs and services to meet those needs.

Community Action Agencies (CAAs) are locally controlled and designed, self-help programs for low-income people. They serve as a training ground where low-income people, through participation in planning and implementation, develop skills and confidence to take responsibility for improving their lives.

CAAs provide a unique partnership in planning and development services through the three part Board structure - public officials, interest groups and low-income people.
