Community Action Agency Salary and Benefits Survey 2019

We are once again conducting the CAA Salary and Benefits Survey, as we have done every three years and starting this year will perform every 2 years.

It is important that your agency completes the survey and submits it to us.  Every salary survey we receive will be used to aggregate data on salaries of 34 key CAA positions, fringe benefits, and personnel practices of community action agencies across the country.

  1. We guarantee that your individual agency responses will remain confidential.
  2. If you complete the Survey before the deadline of Friday, October 4, 2019 you can order the Report at a substantial discount.
  3. By completing the Survey online, you can save trees. Scroll down to access it.

Even if you are not planning on ordering the Report, please complete the Survey. The results of the Survey will be published in December as the CAA Salary and Benefits Survey Report 2019.

The Report will show the national averages, minimums/maximums, and standard deviations for each of the positions surveyed.  The salary charts organize this data by agency variables:  annual budget, number of employees, type of service area (urban, rural, or mixed), type of agency (private or public), and Federal region.  The Report also will present data on fringe benefits (health, dental, life, disability, and vision insurance; tuition reimbursement; retirement); on leave days (vacation, sick, or combined); plus personnel practices like work hours, flex time, job sharing, mileage reimbursement rates, COLA and Merit pay increases, paid holidays, maternity leave, recruitment difficulties, and much more.

This is a cooperative effort. It is sponsored research in which the participants pay the costs. There is no grant money or other subsidy for the printing, postage, data collection, follow-up, analysis and report writing. You can access and submit the survey online by scrolling down, or click here for .doc or here for the PDF.

Your efforts on this are sincerely appreciated, by us and by Community Action Agencies everywhere.
