Learn more about SEACAA’s Awards including selection criteria and the nomination process.

Lonnie D. Burton Achievement Award to an individual who, through the assistance of a Community Action Program, has achieved a significant level of self-sufficiency and independence while recognition is given to the local Community Action Agency’s role in helping the nominee(s) to help themselves.  This award focuses on the personal progress and achievements of the individuals who are nominated.  CAA employees are not eligible for this award unless they are former recipients of CAA services.

William “Sonny” Walker Self-Sufficiency Award to a member organization of SEACAA or one whose interests SEACAA represents, not to an individual, although individual leadership will spur the award winning achievement(s).

Carl D. Perkins Human Service Award to be presented to an individual who consistently advocated and/or contributed to the growth, development and survival of Community Action Programs throughout Region IV (Southeast).
