MASSCAP is the association of the 23 Community Action Agencies (CAAs) – federally mandated anti-poverty agencies serving close to 600,000 people in virtually every city and town in the state.  CAAs were created more than 55 years ago as part of the war on poverty to eliminate the paradox of poverty amidst plenty and to foster economic mobility and stability among our vulnerable friends and neighbors living with low incomes.  MASSCAP’s mission is to strengthen and connect the statewide network of Community Action Agencies and collectively advocate for an end to poverty.  Learn more at www.masscap.org.
