Community Action Agencies (CAAs) are nonprofit private and public organizations established under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 to fight America's War on Poverty. Community Action Agencies help people to help themselves in achieving self-sufficiency.

Program requirements: 

All programs require completion of intake paperwork with one of our staff members, usually by appointment.  Customers must provide income verification, social security numbers and birthdates for all household members, and other documentation as specifically required by each program.  All customers must also be Lake County residents.
