About the Board


Community Action Partnership of Staunton, Augusta, and Waynesboro (CAPSAW) is the community action agency designated in July 2009 by Virginia’s governor to serve the citizens of Augusta County, the City of Staunton, and the City of Waynesboro. It has been likewise designated by the City Councils of Staunton and Waynesboro, and the Board of Supervisors of Augusta County, through a Memorandum of Agreement.

CAPSAW administers funds made available annually to designated community action agencies through the Federal Community Services Block Grant, the State Community Services Block Grant, and Federal Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) funds, along with required match funds provided by each of three localities. The federal and state funds made available to CAPSAW are administered through the Virginia Department of Social Services.

CAPSAW is a public community action agency and must be governed by a board of directors that is comprised of:
  • One-third local elected officials or their representatives
  • One-third democratically elected representatives of the poor
  • One-third being representatives of businesses, religious, social service, education, or other major community groups
