Red River Valley Community Action (RRVCA) is a private, non-profit human service organization serving Nelson, Pembina, Walsh, and Grand Forks Counties. Like community action agencies across the nation, RRVCA works to focus private and public resources on the goal of helping low-income people improve their lives. This includes helping people obtain the education, skills, knowledge, and motivation they need to achieve economic independence for the rest of their lives. 

Eligibility for most programs is based on either federal or state income guidelines. These guidelines vary from program to program and intake forms are used to determine client eligibility. Our programs serve low-income individuals and families, consumers, senior citizens, and others in crisis situations.
