Welcome to

Northeast Nebraska Community Action Partnership (NENCAP)

Our Mission:

People helping people, improving lives in Northeast Nebraska.

About Us: President Lyndon B. Johnson and the Congress of the United States proclaimed a national "War on Poverty" by enacting the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964. To assist in fighting this "War on Poverty," local Community Action Agencies were created to provide a variety of services at the community level to help individuals achieve self-sufficiency. Northeast Nebraska Community Action Partnership (NENCAP), Inc. was chartered in 1966 as the Thurston County Community Action Council in Macy, Nebraska under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964. The first three programs administered by the agency were Head Start, Commodities Supplemental Food Program and Weatherization.

In 2012, the agency changed its name from Goldenrod Hills Community Action to Northeast Nebraska Community Action Partnership Inc. (NENCAP). The change in name was a part of an ongoing national initiative to highlight anti-poverty efforts underway at Community Action Agencies across the country. The initiative, spearheaded by the national office of the Community Action Partnership is designed to increase brand awareness of Community Action-America's poverty fighting network.

There are more than 1,000 Community Action Agencies across the United States working toward a common goal of eliminating the causes and conditions of poverty. NENCAP does this important work in a variety of ways-by assessing the needs and resources of low income people, devising strategies for eliminating poverty, identifying resources of financial support for their work, advocating on behalf of low income people, mobilizing community resources, and administering a variety of programs.

NENCAP is a private non-profit corporation that currently serves a 14-county region in Northeast Nebraska. The region includes the following counties: Antelope, Burt, Cedar, Cuming, Dakota, Dixon, Dodge, Knox, Madison, Pierce, Saunders (WIC only), Stanton, Thurston, Washington and Wayne.
