Dear CCAP Community,
Because the safety of our community and staff are our priority, Comprehensive Community Action remains open to serve the needs of our community. We continue to follow the guidance of the CDC and the RI Department of Health. As information is updated, we will adjust our workflow and access as appropriate.
We are assessing our operations to ensure the safety of our staff, patients, clients and volunteers. Out of an abundance of caution we are limiting access to all of our facilities. Visitors who are ill are asked to stay home and call our offices for information and service. If someone comes to our facilities with symptoms, they will be asked to leave and to call us.
We will no longer hold meetings with over 20 people in attendance. Preference will be to hold all meetings electronically. Staff will no longer participate in meetings with over 20 people expected to attend.
If you receive service from CCAP in our Home visitation programs, you will be contacted by your case worker to ensure you are healthy and asymptomatic.
Our Health Centers remain open to care for our patients. However, all symptomatic patients asked to call first and not to come in.
In the event that we would have to modify or cancel our services, we will issue notifications on our website (comcap.org), and via email and our social media, including Facebook and on Twitter (@CCAPORG)

The U.S. Constitution requires that the Census Bureau count every person living in the United States once every 10 years. The information collected during the census provides vital data for community planning, ensuring fair political representation and enforcing civil rights, and assigning billions of dollars in federal funding for critical public services such as food stamps, public safety, housing support, and education programs.
We have one chance to make sure that everyone in Rhode Island is represented in Census 2020. Let’s make it count.
Each household will receive a notice by starting on March 12th. Filling out the census only takes a few minutes and can be completed for the first time online, as well as by phone and mail.
Federal law prohibits the Census Bureau for sharing your personal information with anyone, including other government agencies such as ICE, for any reason.
Rhode Island receives $3.8 billion in federal funding each year based on the results of the census. These funds support dozens of social services and programs in our communities such as:
- Head Start
- Public transportation
- School lunch program
- Section 8 housing
- Medicare Part B
- Federal Direct student loans
