Community Action Agencies involve the community, including elected public officials, private sector representatives, and low-income residents in assessing local needs and attacking the causes and conditions of poverty.
The Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 created Community Action Agencies to combat poverty in the United States. Cass County Community Action Program was incorporated in 1965. The purpose was to assist the City of Fargo and the County of Cass to mobilize their resources to combat existing poverty. In 1968, our name was officially changed to SouthEastern North Dakota Community Action Agency (SENDCAA). In 1972, SENDCAA became a delegate agency, officially designated to serve Region V, a state planning region.
SENDCAA serves Region V of North Dakota. Region V encompasses six counties: Steele, Traill, Cass, Ransom, Sargent, and Richland. To visit a Community Action Agency in a different Region, click here.
