Leveraging Resources to End Poverty

The core operational funding for Community Action Agencies is the federal Community Services Block Grant. With that funding $3,731,444, they are able to leverage additional funds, create partnerships, conduct local assessments and planning, and organize volunteers. For every $1 of Community Services Block Grant, an additional $48,710,370 is leveraged.

Community Action changes people’s lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes America a better place to live.

We care about the entire community and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.

We believe that this nation has the capacity and moral obligation to ensure that no one is forced to endure the hardships of poverty.
