About Us

Community Action Partnership of Hennepin County (CAP-HC) is a state and federally certified Community Action organization that serves the residents of Hennepin County. We are part of a national network of over 1000 organizations committed to poverty reduction. The network was established in 1964 with the passage of the Economic Opportunity Act.

Established in 1986, CAP-HC is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit that was formerly known as Community Action Partnership of Suburban Hennepin. In 2016, the agency received official designation from then-Governor Mark Dayton's office to extend Community Action Agency services to Minneapolis residents. Today, we are excited to serve all of Hennepin County with viable and multifaceted anti-poverty programming.

CAP-HC has an array of community-centered programs and services, including Energy Assistance, Water Assistance, Financial Wellness, Vehicle Repair Program, Rental Assistance, and Homebuyer Services. We develop partnerships to address poverty while creating avenues of self-sufficiency for individuals and families.

We practice Results-Oriented Management and Accountability (ROMA). 

In addition to our main office in Brooklyn Park, CAP-HC has offices in Bloomington and Minneapolis. Please visit the Locations page for a complete list of locations, addresses, and hours.
