About us
Central Oklahoma Community Action Agency helps low-income individuals and families avoid crisis situations in two ways; meeting emergency needs first, then helping families gain self-sufficiency through supportive case management and partnerships with other social service providers. The Community Action movement dates back to 1964 as part of the Federal Economic Opportunity Act. Community Action Agencies are locally managed with a volunteer board of directors that includes low-income people, public officials, and representatives from the community sector

ABOUT COCAA

Community Action Agencies are not government agencies and rely on donations from the general public and program-specific, restricted grants from private foundations and state and federal government.* Community Action Agencies are local nonprofits working to improve the lives of low-income residents through increased self-sufficiency and community participation. Community Action Agencies serve all 77 counties in Oklahoma. Community Action Agencies were established under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 to fight America’s war on Poverty.

Local tripartite boards control Community Action Agencies. Boards are composed of one-third low-income residents, one-third elected officials and one-third local businesses, nonprofit organization, faith-based or community groups. Local tripartite boards allow Community Action Agencies to determine the most effective programs based on the specific needs of communities in their service areas. Community Action Agencies identify specific needs in their localities through community needs assessments. Community Action Agencies receiving Head Start grants must have board members who are parents of children enrolled in Head Start, or with expertise in finance, early childhood education, or the law. Additional board members are selected for expertise in education, business administration, or community affairs.
