Every Community Action agency is required to have a tripartite board consisting of equal parts of local private sector, public sector, and low-income community representatives. This structure brings together community leaders from each of these groups to collaborate on developing responses to local needs and allowing for maximum feasible participation in both the creation and administration of our programs.
