Welcome to Harford Community Action Agency, Inc.

As Harford County’s designated Community Action Agency, the HCAA’s mission is to help all Harford County individuals and families who are experiencing financial hardships in meeting their housing, food, energy/heating, and/or budget and family counseling needs. We support and encourage them on their path to self-sufficiency.

We accomplish this purpose through a diverse offering of programs and services. Current programs include: Maryland Energy Assistance Program, Harford County Fuel Fund, Homeless Prevention, Homeless Services, Community Food Pantry/Food Bank, Financial Services Program, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA), and GED Plus.
