The Alameda County-Oakland Community Action Partnership was established under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 to fight America's War on Poverty. Alameda County - Oakland Community Action Partnership (AC-OCAP) is part of broad national and statewide network of nearly 1,100 agencies, both non-profit private and public organizations, that extend across the United States—all working to eliminate poverty on a local and national level. CAP involves local citizens in its effort to address specific barriers to achieving self-sufficiency.

AC-OCAP is committed to reducing poverty by providing services and programs targeted to low-income individuals and families. AC-OCAP has been funding programs and projects in the low-income community since 1971.
