Community Action Agencies (CAAs) are nonprofit private and public organizations established under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 to fight America's War on Poverty. Community Action Agencies are intended to promote self-sufficiency, and they depend heavily on volunteer work.

The Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) is the agencies' core source of federal funding. Agencies also operate a variety of grants that come from federal, state, and local sources. These grants vary widely among agencies, although most CAAs operate Head Start programs, which focus on early childhood development. Other programs frequently administered by Community Action Agencies include Low-Income Home Energy Assistance (LIHEAP) utility grants and the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) funded by the US Department of Energy (DOE).

Because each CAA is governed locally, each provides a different mix of programs and services. Services typically include:
-Community Coordination
-Emergency Services
-Food and Nutrition
-Family Development
-Income Management
-Economic Development
-Health Care
