All about CDCAA

CDCAA is in your community



Pine Bluff, Jefferson County Economic Opportunities Commission Inc. (PBJCEOC) is chartered as a private – non-profit agency, by the Arkansas Secretary of State as a Community Action Agency.

In October 2019 articles were updated and registered with the Internal Revenue Service and business operations began as a “doing business as” (dba) name (Central Delta Community Action Agency – CDCAA).

The Arkansas Department of Human Services partners with CDCAA and 14 other Community Action Agencies throughout the state of Arkansas to implement the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG).


The Central Delta Community Action Agency is focused on building stronger and healthier communities. We are dedicated to empowering low-income individuals and families by providing the education, services, and opportunities needed for self-sufficiency.


The Agency’s vision is to be recognized statewide as providing key-leadership role in assisting families, individuals, and the community leading the development of opportunities for low income across the service area.

Families are viewed not as burdens to society but as productive citizens who can make a positive difference. They are supported in their goals to be self-sufficient. Through established partnerships and human connections, we will use our best tools and resources to improve  the lives and livelihood of the people we serve.
