Partnering with People to Overcome Poverty


For more than 50 years, Community Action Partnership of Ramsey and Washington Counties has served our community, educated the public, and transformed systems. Learn more and take action.

Community Action Resource Center Open to the Public

Community Action continues to offer critical supports including processing applications and distributing Energy Assistance during this time, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some Community Action offices and tenant suites will continue to be closed to walk-in traffic.

If you are attempting to seek services from one of our building tenants please contact them directly or go to their website for further information.  

All people entering our buildings will be expected to follow local and state safety protocols to minimize COVID-19 public health risks including wearing face coverings/masks, practicing safe social distancing of 6 feet or more, frequent hand washing, and staying home if experiencing symptoms.

Working Together: The Community Action Blog

On May, 19 (10:00 am to 11:00 am CDT), Community Action Partnership of Ramsey & Washington Counties will host "COVID-19 Vaccines and the Black Community: A Virtual Town Hall." This free, interactive event features Dr. Minelva Nanton Donato and Chanon Ridore (APRN, CNP), who will discuss the the COVID-19 vaccine and the impact of the pandemic on the African American community.

The deadline to apply for Energy Assistance has been extended to September 1, 2021. In addition, the eligibility guidelines have been expanded to include households that earn up to 60% of Minnesota's SMI, opening the program to 100,000 more state residents.

The Emergency Broadband Benefit is designed to assist low to moderate-income households struggling to afford internet services during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is a much needed tool as it will help link eligible individuals and families to essential healthcare services, employment opportunities, online classrooms, social service benefits, and other vital resources.
