National Community Action Foundation (NCAF)

The National Community Action Foundation (NCAF) is a private, non-profit organization which serves as an advocate and lobbyist for programs that assist low-income families and individuals.  Founded in 1981, NCAF represents Community Action Agencies (CAAs) as well as their state and regional associations to help amplify and enhance their work in local communities throughout the country, promoting self-sufficiency and sustainable poverty reduction. 

Also important on the national level is CAP-PAC, our national political action committee.
