Community Value-Added Capacity (CVAC) is a planning process designed to help communities develop strategies for poverty reduction while planning for economic development. CVAC is built around five value-added capacities: inclusivity, regional scope, leadership development, economic vitality, and asset-based development. These five capacities are known to be vital in reducing poverty and revitalizing communities. Communities are provided with facilitated guidance through a planning process curriculum that includes user-friendly tools, guest speakers, learning activities, case studies, and lessons learned from past participants.
