Local Solutions to Local Needs

The power of Community Action as a national effort is that local agencies are not limited to a national docket of programming. CSBG funding and additional leveraged dollars give your local community action agency the flexibility to find and/or create specific solutions to local causes of poverty and inequity in local areas. Public transportation may be a need in SE Kansas, while Income Development Accounts might better serve North Central Kansans. Short and Long Term assistance programs can be considered and implemented as agencies seek to help families on the road to self-sufficiency. 

If you're a Kansas resident currently struggling and looking for tools to bring stability and prosperity to your home and community, you may be eligible to receive assistance in the following ways for the following services. Just be sure to contact your local Community Action Agency.

Why Our Work Works

Member Operations Post-Covid

Each KACAP member agency is examining its own policies and practices and will make modifications as it deems necessary. Because many of our agencies provide services that provide face-to-face contact between agency staff and customers, some agencies may modify service delivery or even temporarily make some services unavailable. KACAP will work with our members to identify how the coronavirus threat has changed what they are able to do with their customers and will work to make such information widely available.
