About CAFCA

Our Mission

To strengthen the capacity of our members to empower people in need and improve the communities in which they live.

History & Overview

Incorporated in 1974, the Connecticut Association for Community Action, Inc. (CAFCA) is the state association for Connecticut’s nine Community Action Agencies (CAAs), the state and federally designated antipoverty agencies, established by President Johnson to help fight the War on Poverty.

Through our strong partnership with the state and federal agencies, community-based organizations, and other state, regional, and national partners, we work to address the causes and conditions of poverty in Connecticut.

CAFCA serves Connecticut’s CAAs through:

  • Training & Technical Assistance (T/TA);
  • Information dissemination on state and national initiatives;
  • Advocacy & Public Policy;
  • Assistance with program administration;
  • Planning state & regional conferences and events; and,
  • Information technology support.

CAFCA’s data reporting method utilizes a Results Based Accountability (RBA) framework called Results Oriented Management and Accountability (ROMA). This allows Connecticut’s CAAs to efficiently and effectively measure meaningful customer, agency, and community outcomes and results.

Through these initiatives, CAFCA is a recognized leader in providing individuals, families, and communities with the appropriate tools, skills, and opportunities needed for economic stability and self-sufficiency.
