Wisconsin's Poverty Fighting Network

Approximately one in ten Wisconsinites live in poverty. 

WISCAP's statewide network of sixteen local Community Action Agencies and two single purpose agencies is uniquely positioned to address the grinding poverty that exists in our rural, urban, and suburban communities alike. The people of our state who struggle in these circumstances deserve our respect — and our boldest, most innovative efforts to find solutions.

One of WISCAP's four focus areas is research. WISCAP joins with local, state and national institutions to study the realities of poverty and the impact of legislation and policy on local communities. Visit the Wisconsin Poverty page to learn more.
