CNA Development VISTA
Since 1964, UCC has been the designated Community Action Agency
(CAA) for the City of Newark. CAAs are local non-profit
organizations, supported by federal Community Services Block Grant
funding that carries out the Community Action Program, which was
founded by the 1964 Economic Opportunity Act to fight poverty by
empowering the poor as part of the War on Poverty. Over 5,000
people have benefited from our numerous programs that include
affordable housing, shelter for the homeless, pantries for the
hungry, and activities for the elderly, young adults and children.
