Poverty Conference

Each year, CAP Utah holds an Annual Poverty Conference. The conference is designed to provide solution-based trainings, workshops and plenary sessions for Utah's network of Community Action Agencies and other community partners. The conference offers a forum for nonprofit professionals, government officials, and business leaders from across the state to collaborate with one another to strengthen low and moderate-income communities in Utah.
