About CAP Dayton

Community Action Partnership of the Greater Dayton Area was established as a nonprofit corporation in December 1964, with the passage of the Economic Opportunity Act. The goal was “the elimination of the paradox of poverty in the land of plenty,” and created Community Action Agencies to focus all available local, state, private and federal resources on empowering low-income people to attain the skills, knowledge and opportunities required to lead more productive lives and become self-sufficient. Community Action Partnership has an operating budget of approximately $13 million, more  than 100 employees and a 21-member Board of Trustees. We are affiliated  with the National Community Action Partnership, that represents more than 1,000 Community Action Agencies across the United States who share our goals.
