What is ACAP? For nearly five decades, when people in Aroostook County have faced challenges, Aroostook County Action Program (ACAP) has been the local agency to help. ACAP, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, is 1 of 10 community action programs in the state and 1 of approximately 1,100 nationwide. All these years later, we remain committed to our mission of “Making Life Better” in Aroostook County.

Who Do We Serve? We serve the community of Maine’s largest county. From moms-to-be and our youngest children, to families and individuals, to our eldest generations, ACAP programs collectively impact nearly everyone in Northern Maine.

What Do We Do? Everyone deserves to feel safe, secure, and free to pursue goals. Sometimes, achieving those things on your own is hard and having support can make the biggest difference. We work to make that difference for our customers. We offer more than 40 programs that connect with individuals, families and the community in areas of Prevention and Wellness, Early Care and Education, Energy and Housing, and Economic Development. Rather than trying to fit a customer into a program, we let the customer lead the way and offer to walk beside them in their journey through a supportive coaching approach.
