The Promise of
Community Action:

Community Action changes people's lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes America a better place to live. We care about the entire community and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.

Welcome to the Community Action
Partnership of North Dakota!

The Community Action Partnership of North Dakota serves the collective interests of its members and the low-income population of the state through representation and education.

Community Action Agencies were originally established under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 to fight America's War on Poverty. Today, there are seven Community Action Agencies in North Dakota who provide programs and services in all 53 counties. By combing local, state, private, and federal resources the Community Action Agencies enable low- and moderate-income people of all ages to secure the opportunities they need to obtain and maintain self-sufficiency.

Established in 1976, the Community Action Partnership of North Dakota is a private, non-profit membership organization representing the eight Community Action Agencies in North Dakota.
