Poverty affects 15% of people living in Tennessee.
Over 500,000 low-income individuals and families found support and assistance at Community Action Agencies in FY 2011. Programs are operated through a comprehensive network of 20 Community Action Agencies (CAAs) that geographically encompass the entire state.
