Community Action Agencies are private or public nonprofit organizations that were created by the federal government in 1964 to combat poverty in geographically designated areas. Community Action changes people’s lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes America a better place to live. We care about the entire community, and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other. Status as a Community Action Agency is the result of an explicit designation by local or state government.


In partnership with community stakeholders, the Economic Opportunity Board of Clark County is committed to introducing and implementing programs, resources and advocacy which lead to self-sufficiency and economic empowerment for low-income individuals and families.
