Community Action Partnership

The Community Action Partnership was established in 1971 as the National Association of Community Action Agencies (NACAA) and is the national organization representing the interests of the 1,000 Community Action Agencies, which were established under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 to fight America's War on Poverty. Community Action Agencies help people to help themselves in achieving self-sufficiency. Community Action Agencies play a variety of roles, ranging from providing social services (such as running Head Start programs) to direct participation in asset building, business lending, and housing development.
