Total Action For Progress

Total Action for Progress (TAP, formerly Total Action Against Poverty) was founded in 1965 to address poverty by creating opportunities for everyone to fully participate in society. Its thirty programs help to further its mission of encouraging self-reliance and self-determination by strengthening and empowering individuals, families and communities by expanding access to existing opportunities, creating new opportunities, and mobilizing the community's goodwill and resources.
TAP, in Roanoke Valley, is using HFFI financing to support a three-pronged economic development program that includes: comprehensive pre- and post-loan technical assistance and business development services, access to employment and training for participants who employ low-income or TANF participants, and a revolving loan fund for new or expanding services.
