Community Action
Celebrates 50 Years

Community Action Program's across the country recently met in Washington, DC to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the community action movement.

On August 20, 1964 President Lyndon Johnson signed the Economic Opportunity Action creating a variety of programs - including Community Action Agencies - as part of his "War on Poverty."

For 50 years, Community Action Programs have provided much needed services and opportunities to millions of low-income people and families.

Community Action Agencies helped improve lives and communities by providing Head Start, financial education, job training, affordable housing, community economic development, health care, energy assistance, and much more.

CCAP was created in the City of Cranston in December of 1965 and started serving clients in January of 1966.  Watch for our special 50th anniversary next year!
