The Tennessee Association of Community Action

Poverty affects 15% of people living in Tennessee. 

Over 420,000 low-income individuals and families found support and assistance at Community Action Agencies in FY 2012. 


CAAs look beyond the number of people served to the impact of programs and services on families and communites and to return on the community's investment. 


See how Tennessee CSBG Network Agencies addressed 877,358 conditions of poverty and leveraged $5.60 for every $1.00 of CSBG dollar received!  


Join us this year as we commemorate 50 years of working to alleviate poverty by empowering families and strengthening Tennessee communities.

Tennessee Association of Community Action  priorities are training, technical assistance, and advocacy for member agencies.
