The Community Services Network is made up of more than 1,100 local, private, nonprofit and public agencies that work to alleviate poverty and empower low-income families in communities throughout the United States. Most of these agencies are Community Action Agencies (CAAs) created through the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964. The balance, included under the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG), follow similar guidelines for structure and service.
Another huge contribution made available through the CSBG Act is the design and mandate that HCAP must have a tri-part Board of Directors consisting of 1/3 public officials, 1/3 private business Director'ss and 1/3 resident poor. These are the people that oversee HCAP programs and activities through the maintenace and enforcement of solid decision making policies in the organization.
