Community Action Partnership



Do you remember, or have you heard of  Sargent Shriver and President Lyndon B Johnson’s Great Society, launched in 1964 – a sweeping plan designed to help eliminate poverty and racial injustice in the country? As an advisor to President Johnson, Shriver was the driving force behind such programs as Head Start, Job Corps and Community Action, which still continue today.

Founded in 1976, the California Community Action Partnership Association (CalCAPA) serves member Community Action Agencies (CAAs) and other Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) funded organizations that deliver human services to economically disadvantaged families and children across California.

Although federal funding has been reduced, CalCAPA still provides a variety of services to 1.5 million low-income individuals in over 600,000 families in California each year.

In Shasta County there is an Energy Agency, Community Action Agency; Native American Indian Agency; and Migrant & Seasonal Farmworker Agency.

The HUD Continuum of Care (CoC) Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for federal fiscal year 2016 was released on June 29, 2016 and Shasta County’s CoC Collaborative Application will be submitted to HUD on August 31, 2016. The Rank and Review panel meets this Thursday.
