Who We Are

Greater Chinatown Community Association (GCCA) betters the well-being of the Chinatown community within New York City through unique, individualized program services. Established in 1972, GCCA has long since been a pioneer and innovator in the provision of resources and assistance. As of Census 2000, the New York Metropolitan area has the largest Chinese population in the United States. Our economically disadvantaged and underserved population faces a wide range of problems, including: illiteracy and language barriers,unemployment, lack of social benefits, and poor health conditions. In particular, this population struggles with a 60% English proficiency rate and 22% poverty rate. GCCA strives to combat these deficiencies.
