2014 Marks the 50th Anniversary for Community Action
In 1964 President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the Economic Opportunity Act which created Community Action Programs along with other programs such as Job Corps, Medicare, and VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) to fight his War on Poverty. For 50 years, Community Action has provided much needed services and opportunities to millions of low-income people and families. We've helped improve lives and communities by providing Head Start, Individual Development Accounts, financial education, job training, affordable housing, community economic development, natural disaster relief and recovery, health care, energy assistance, and much more.
