The Division of Community Assistance and Development contracts directly with Community Action Agencies and the Arizona Community Action Association. Some of these agencies subcontract with other community agencies within their service area to provide additional services.
Contact your local Community Action Agency to get help with:
utility or mortgage assistance
eviction or foreclosure prevention assistance
Please note that there is high demand for assistance from Community Action Agencies, and their phone lines get very busy. It may take you some time to get through.
The Community Action Network is made up of public and private agencies that work to alleviate poverty and empower low-income families in communities throughout Arizona. Most of the agencies are Community Action Agencies (CAAs), created through the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964. CAAs provide services to more than 150,000 people annually.
To receive federal funding, the services are governed by the follow statutory goals:
Securing and maintaining employment
Securing adequate education
Better income management
Securing adequate housing
Providing emergency services
Creating linkages among anti-poverty programs
Arizona Self Help: Arizona Self Help is a free and easy way to find out if your family can get help from 40 different health and human services programs.
