The Massachusetts Association for Community Action (MASSCAP)
The Massachusetts Association for Community Action (MASSCAP) is the statewide association of the 24 Community Action Agencies (CAAs) in Massachusetts. CAAs were created 40 years ago under a federal mandate to combat poverty. Since their inception, CAAs have evolved into multi-service agencies which assist tens of thousands of individuals and families each year. MASSCAP's mission is to enhance the abilities of CAAs to assist low-income and working poor families and individuals across Massachusetts in their efforts to gain needed services and to attain economic self-sufficiency.
