FiveCAP, a private non profit 501(c)3 corporation, is one of 29 Community Action Agencies in the State of Michigan. The agency got its name, not from the number of counties involved (serving four counties: Lake, Mason, Manistee and Newaygo), but because it was the fifth Community Action Agency formed in the state of Michigan following the federal grassroots intiative in the 1960's.
