Southern Maryland Tri-County Community Action Committee, Inc. (SMTCCAC) was incorporated
as a 501(c}3 in August 1965. This occurred after three Calvert County residents acted out of
concern over the level of poverty in their county. The governing board of the agency has
been composed of Calvert, Charles and St. Mary’s residents, in equal proportions since the
county commissioners from the three counties designated SMTCCAC as the official recipient
of Economic Opportunity Act funds in 1965. Tri-County Council for Southern Maryland was
responsible for the first funds received to begin operations after they submitted an application
for funding on behalf of SMTCCAC.
The agency continues to deliver a robust number of programs geared to meet the needs of the
Tri-county community. Our Board has completed a strategic plan in 2018 to review current needs to determine if there are
any gaps in services provided by the agency. We continue to partner and collaborate with other providers to ensure that the
residents receive services or referrals as needed. SMTCCAC has worked diligently this year to offer needed services to combat
poverty and to help those in the community that require intervention and service as needed. For more history information, please click here.
