Innovation


For Community Action to be relevant and effective, we must continue to innovate and grow. By working together, we ignite ideas that could become the solutions of tomorrow, thus securing our ability to continue helping communities in the future. NCAF is at the forefront of identifying innovative practices in Community Action, and working to expand and find resources for these practices.  The work we pioneer paves the way for the country. The incredible programs that have started with us since 1964-- Weatherization, Head Start, Legal Aid, Community Health Centers-- are not the end of the story. NCAF is creating the space to cultivate the innovations that will guide the network in anti-poverty solutions.
