Community Action Partnership

Community Action Agencies are non-profit private and public agencies established under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 as part of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s “War on Poverty.” There are now approximately 1000 Community Action Agencies across the Nation that serve as a focal point to coordinate and plan for the provision of community services that support, assist, and empower low-income people and to improve their quality of life. In Monterey County, Community Action is operated publically under the Department of Social Services as the Monterey County Community Action Partnership (CAP). The Monterey County Board of Supervisors designates 15 Commissioners (3 from each supervisorial district) to serve upon the Community Action Commission (CAC) which advises and assists the CAP. The CAC meets monthly to support engagement in three major Community Action activities: contracting with nonprofit and public agencies for services, collaborating with community stakeholders, and supporting educational community activities. For more information, contact the CAP Director, Lauren Suwansupa at
