The Community Action Partnership is a national, nonprofit organization that works to strengthen, promote, represent and serve its network of over 1,000 member Community Action Agencies to ensure that the causes and conditions of poverty are addressed effectively.
NCAP is a national hub that links the over 1,000 Community Action Agencies to each other and to leaders looking for solutions that connect people to greater opportunity.
The organization provides technical assistance, training, and other resources to the Community Action Agencies, which are nonprofit and public groups funded by the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG), a federal program that allocates funding to states. The CAAs, in turn, use the funds to help low-income community residents chart paths to prosperity.
The tools and resources provided to Community Action Agencies across the country by the National Community Action Partnership enable the agencies to stay up-to-date on best practices to empower individuals, families and communities to succeed.
The Partnership office supports local agency leaders with training and technical assistance so they can apply best practices to their work and pursue innovative strategies that strengthen families and communities.
The Partnership works hand in hand with CAAs to pursue community-wide solutions to barriers holding families back from success, particularly through programs on community economic development and racial equity.
The Partnership is a unified voice for members, shaping smarter federal and state proposals for helping families succeed by lifting up solutions that work.
