The National Community Action Partnership envisions a nation that creates opportunities for all people to thrive by building strong, resilient communities, and ensuring a more equitable society for all community members.

As the national membership association for Community Action Agencies (CAA) and State Associations, we acknowledge that local CAAs are the backbone of Community Action and play a crucial role in shaping that national vision.

The Partnership establishes this Community Action public policy platform, which is derived from our strategic plan and core values, so that local Agencies and State Associations may utilize it for local and state engagement.
