Compressed Work Week
As of July 4, 2016, Community Action Partnership of North Central Missouri (CAPNCM) will move to a compressed work week. This will change our hours of operation to Monday through Thursday, 7:30am to 5:00pm, remaining open over the lunch hour.
In observance of Independence Day, CAPNCM will be closed Monday, July 4th. On Tuesday, July 5th our Trenton office will begin our new hours by opening at 7:30am and remaining open until 5:00pm. You will be able to reach our staff Monday through Thursday, 7:30am to 5:00pm.
Our Women’s Health Services Department will not alter their current clinic schedule, and Missouri Works Assistance (MWA) staff will adjust their schedules so at least one staff person is available Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm.  With regards to our rental units, we will continue to follow the same after-hours protocol.
The definition of a compressed work week is as follows: Alternative work arrangement where a standard workweek is reduced to fewer than five days, and employees make up the full number of hours per week by working longer hours.
If you have questions concerning this change, please contact our office by calling 855-290-8544.

Weatherization Works
2016 marks the 40th anniversary of the Weatherization program in Missouri. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources responded to the energy crisis of the early 1970s by establishing the Low-Income Weatherization Assistance Program (LIWAP). The program is currently overseen by the Department of Economic Development and operated by Missouri’s Community Action Partnerships.  The program provides cost-effective energy-efficient home improvements to Missouri's low income households, especially the elderly, children, those with physical disadvantages, and others hit hardest by high utility costs. The program aims to lower utility bills and improve comfort while ensuring health and safety. Today, weatherization is the nation's largest residential energy efficiency program. Community Action Partnership of North Central Missouri is currently seeking home owners and renters/landlords interested in participating in the Weatherization Program.

All households interested in applying to receive weatherization services for their home are invited to fill out an application for the program. A program application is available online at capncm.org, or by calling the Agency office at 855-290-8544 ext. 1064 or ext. 1065 and requesting an application to be mailed or faxed to you. Rental homes also qualify for Weatherization (some conditions do apply, please call for more details).

If you, or someone you know, may benefit from the CAPNCM Weatherization program, please share this information with them. Contact the agency toll free, at 855-290-8544.
