Tuolumne, Calaveras & Amador Counties….It’s Still Not Too Late to Claim Your Earned Income Tax Credit!
The Amador Tuolumne Community Action Agency (ATCAA), was created in 1981 as a public, nonprofit entity through a joint powers agreement between the two counties of Amador and Tuolumne, vested with the responsibility of improving the lives of residents in the foothill region.
ATCAA provides services based on the local community assessments that identify the assets and needs of our community. Services and projects have varied over the years based on community need and available funding.
Our Board of Directors is a tripartite board consisting of up to eighteen members representing the private sector, public sector and low‒income representatives of our community. The unique structure of a Community Action Agency brings together diverse leaders of the community to collaborate and respond to the community needs more effectually.
Our services are supported by hundreds volunteers who play a critical role in the success of our services and assist our dedicated ATCAA staff. We gratefully acknowledge their help, financial support and the contribution of local community organizations, schools, agencies, churches, businesses and individuals.
Since its first year, 1981, ATCAA has become involved in a variety of programs based on community needs and available funding. Programs and services are provided in both counties at convenient locations with Agency Service centers in Jackson and Sonora. Many services are also currently provided in neighboring counties of Calaveras, Alpine and Mariposa. ATCAA’s administrative offices is located in Jackson, CA.
The Amador Tuolumne Community Action Agency (ATCAA) was established in July, 1981 through a Joint Powers Agreement (JPA) between the counties of Amador and Tuolumne. The two counties formed a JPA because, at that time, each county separately lacked the minimum 50,000 population level for Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) funding.
The Joint Powers Agreement is the authorizing document of the local elected officials, the Amador and Tuolumne County Boards of Supervisors, establishing ATCAA as a two-county legal entity. As a JPA, ATCAA is a public agency.
Amador Tuolumne Community Resources, Inc., (ATCR), a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation was formed in the 1990’s to assist the Amador Tuolumne Community Action Agency.
