The Greater Hazleton Area Civic Partnership (GHACP) is a grassroots community organization who's mission statement is to make the Greater Hazleton Area the best place to live, learn, work, worship and play.
The GHACP sponsors a variety of community events and projects, including The Scholarship Program, Rails to Trails, Gateway Beautification, Black Creek Township Alumni Association, MCOG and the Community Assessment.Much of the GHACP's mission came about as a result of the Zogby Report.
Due to the initiative of Hazleton Community Leaders in 1998, the Greater Hazleton Area has achieved much through the efforts of the dedicated volunteers of the GHACP. Over the last eight years the volunteers have made a significant difference in the lives of over 70,000 local people including minorities and people of all income levels. The GHACP volunteers have raised over $860,000 in grants and local funding to support the projects that have made such a positive outcome for all our area residents and visitors.
