Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission was established in 1966 as part of the Johnson Administration's "War on Poverty." While still focusing on the needs of low income families, the agency has evolved significantly in those 40 plus years to become one of Northern Kentucky's preeminent multipurpose human services agencies.
The agency is noted for involvement of its staff in community affairs, sensitivity to the needs of low income families, and providing high quality services for children and families.
The Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission (NKCAC) is the designated Community Action Agency (CAA) for the eight counties of Boone, Campbell, Carroll, Gallatin, Grant, Kenton, Owen and Pendleton.
Community Action Agencies are a nationwide network of agencies whose mission is assisting economically disadvantaged persons in allievating the causes and consequences of poverty, and developing a plan to overcome barriers to self-sufficiency.
