Who We Are
The Rural Alaska Community Action Program, Inc. (RurAL CAP), founded in 1965, is a private, statewide, nonprofit organization working to improve the quality of life for low-income Alaskans.
Governed by a 24-member Board of Directors, we represent every region of the state as one of the largest and most diverse nonprofit organizations in Alaska.
We value input from and have respect for all people. We believe that Alaskans have the right to maintain their cultural heritage and close relationship to the land while protecting their economic and human potential.
