Cameron County Commissioners recently proclaimed the month of May to be Community Action Month in Cameron County in honor of the fifty-year effort to improve the quality-of-life for low-income residents of the area.

Northern Tier Community Action Corporation (NTCAC) was founded in 1966 as part of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s Economic Opportunity Act and the war on poverty.

NTCAC serves individuals and families in a 3,300-square mile area encompassing Cameron, Elk, McKean and Potter counties, promoting self-sufficiency for those of limited income; ensuring that all residents are able to live with dignity; implementing innovative and cost-effective programs to improve the lives and living conditions of the impoverished; providing support and instruction for everyone in need of assistance; and being a major voice of reason in establishing welfare system reforms.
