ACCORD is a private, non-profit Community Action Agency (CAA), established under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 to fight America’s War on Poverty. CAA’s are a primary source of support for the more than 38 million Americans who suffer from living in poverty. Since 1972, ACCORD has continually expanded the array of programs and services for low and moderate income individuals and families. Today ACCORD secures approximately $7 million in grant funds each year to provide residents with services including small business, child care referral, domestic violence, emergency food, Head Start, homeless and housing, and after-school programs.
