Organizational Description

Community Action Partnership (CAP) is a nonprofit, national membership organization representing the interests of the 1,100 Community Action Agencies (CAAs) across the country that work to help low-income Americans achieve economic security.  CAP’s mission is to strengthen, promote, represent, and serve its network of member agencies to assure that the issues of the poor are effectively heard and addressed.   

Use(s) of Administration for Children and Families (ACF) Program Funds

During this one-year supplement to their existing project, CAP will collect, develop and deliver training and technical assistance (T/TA) to Community Action Agencies (CAAs) and other CSBG-eligible entities through an interactive website providing 24-hour and 7 days a week access to case studies, curricula, interactive tool kits and video addressing exemplary practices in job creation and careers in energy efficient and environmentally beneficial fields.  The Partnership’s Annual Conferences will provide a venue to showcase the project’s products.

Expected Outcomes

At least 20 projects in job creation and careers in energy efficient and environmentally beneficial fields will be initiated through this grant.  The Partnership will examine the practices of successful projects, codify and catalogue action steps and best practices and disseminate the resulting materials and training throughout the CSBG network.  The Partnership will provide extensive training and peer assistance for CSBG-eligible entities willing to undertake or expand their job creation activities.  This proposal builds on past efforts and will leverage future Federal investment by collecting information and best practices from projects developed across agencies and funding streams, and distributing them widely for replication.
