NORWESCAP is a private, non-profit corporation originally established in 1965 under the Economic Opportunity Act to serve the low-income population of Hunterdon, Sussex and Warren Counties.
The Community Action Agency, under "Johnson's Great Society" was the local vehicle to fight poverty. Elimination of poverty was one of the issues in the forefront during the years of 1964-1974. The Federal regional offices made grants directly to Community Action Agencies; and the State's role was that of commenting and training. – less–ZoomInfo
