History

COMMUNITY ACTION AGENCY
OF

ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY

Since 1965, the Community Action Agency has served residents of the City of Annapolis and all of Anne Arundel County.  As the county’s designated anti-poverty agency, we administer programs developed to help lower-income families and individuals increase their assets and reach self-sufficiency.  With our focus on the Two-Generation Whole Family approach to providing services, we have programs that benefit household members from infancy through their senior years.

Community Action serves over 16,000 Anne Arundel County residents each year through our six program areas:  Early Head Start, Energy Assistance, Health and Wellness Equity, Housing Assistance and Services, Returning Citizens, and Youth Development Services.  The Agency is committed to identifying gaps in programming and developing new initiatives to better serve our community.

During FY2020:


14,426 received energy assistance
551  households saved from homelessness
32 infants, toddlers, and their families served through EHS
18 attended first-time homebuyer classes
