Board & Leadership

Board of Directors

CCAP is governed by the provisions of the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG), as are all CAP agencies. As a result, ourBoard of Directors is required to consist of a tripartite -- it comprises three different sectors of our community. We have a 15 member Board--

  • One-third is comprised of representatives from local government
  • One-third is comprised from local organizations
  • One-third is made up of consumers of our services

Leadership Team

CCAP's day to day operations are led by the President and Chief Executive Officer, Joanne McGunagle, who has assembled a seasoned Leadership Team which assists in the daily operation of the Agency. CCAP is the largest community action program in Rhode Island with an annual budget of over $26 million and a staff of over 320 employees.
