News & Notes

After a successful pilot program last year, TCAA is opening the city’s only Financial Opportunity Center. The center helps low to moderate income individuals develop effective money habits and strengthen their financial status. The center - developed in partnership with Local Initiative Support Corp. (LISC) and with support from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust and State Farm - is an ideal fit for TCAA’s range of programs and services designed to foster self-reliance.

Tempe Community Action Agency has partnered with Salt River Project and Arizona Public Service to provide utility assistance to low-income households struggling to make ends meet during a temporary family crisis.
