    Community Action Partnership of Staunton, Augusta and Waynesboro: CAPSAW 2013 Annual Report The Community Action Partnership of Staunton, Augusta and Waynesboro, CAPSAW, was formed in 2009 to provide funding and technical assistance for anti-poverty based programming in our community. Although CAPSAW is relatively new to the SAW region it was formed as a direct result of the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 and it’s mission to eliminate poverty and to foster opportunities for individuals, families and communities to achieve economic security. CAPSAW funds services that change people’s lives and improve our community. Since CAPSAW’s inception in 2009 over 30,000 individuals from the Staunton, Augusta and Waynesboro region have been served by dozens of agencies receiving over 1.3million dollars. Roughly 20% of these funds were provided by our localities meaning 80% came from state and federal sources. Partner agencies are chosen through a competitive grants application process. Each year CAPSAW Board Members are asked to determine the best and most appropriate use of these dollars. Each year there are more requests than can be honored. To evaluate success, CAPSAW determines the impact these funds are having on our community and its mission to foster an environment in which economic security for each and every individual and family in the region is attainable. 2009-2013 Local Dollars Individuals Served $1.3 Million Awarded 20% ($263,000) 30,000+ CAPSAW will continue to focus on impactful programming, strengthening partnerships, encouraging collaboration and elimination of the duplication of effort as we move into future funding cycles. Partner agencies will be asked to continue their efforts in providing services directed towards addressing Self Sufficiency, Family Stability and Community Revitalization and Enhancement.
