Economic Opportunity Council

The Community Services Bureau Community Action Partnership (CAP) is a public organization established under the EOC Act of 1964 to assist with fighting America’s War on Poverty. CAP helps people to help themselves in achieving self-sufficiency and economic stability through the provision of the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG). We meet the needs of the community and achieve our goals by partnering with community members; establishing and fostering community partnerships; developing and adapting new and innovative initiatives and working with other community-based and public organizations to leverage funding.

The Economic Opportunity Council (EOC) is a tripartite advisory board to the Board of Supervisors and the Community Services Bureau of the Employment & Human Services Department (EHSD) for Contra Costa County for administration of the Community Services Block Grant.

The EOC board composition included five members of the public/private non-profit sector, five members of the low-income sector and five members of the Board of Supervisors or their designees.
