Springfield Partners for Community Action is the federally designated Community Action Agency (CAA) for the greater Springfield area, serving about 10,000 low-income people annually.
Our mission is to partner with people and the community as a whole, in a way that leads to economic stability, so that we all enjoy a better quality of life.
Established in 1964 under the Economic Opportunity Act, Springfield Partners is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, SOMWBA-certified enterprise. The agency has 48 years of experience providing services and advocacy to alleviate the conditions of poverty for area residents.
We do this through education and outreach, and by offering programs to help people build assets, obtain affordable childcare, get free home weatherization and tax filing services, and much more.

SNAP CutsImportant Information For Organizations Helping SNAP Households: BENEFITS for ALL SNAP HOUSEHOLDS will be CUT starting NOVEMBER 2013
Why are SNAP (food stamp) benefits going down?
In November, monthly SNAP benefits will decrease across the nation.
The federal law that boosted SNAP benefits during the Recession ends November 1st. This 2009 law was called the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act or ARRA. Congress has not voted in more funding to keep the ARRA level of SNAP benefits.
Massachusetts is not able to change this law.
For information on additional food sources, SNAP recipients can also contact Project Bread via their FoodSource Hotline at 1-800-645-8333 or www.projectbread.org
