As the capacity building and advocacy arm of the community economic development movement in Massachusetts, MACDC offers extensive programming and service offerings to our members and other professionals involved in our field. At our core, we are dedicated to creating places of opportunity where ALL people can live with dignity while participating in and benefiting from our Commonwealth's economy.

To achieve this goal, we strive to ensure that CDCs in Massachusetts have the resources necessary to achieve phenominal results in each community and neigborhood they work.  Furthermore, it is critical that we advocate for our field's shared interests at the state and federal level.  Throughout the programs and services we offer there are many incredible success stories and accomplishments, but each individual achievement supports a movement that aims to tranform each Massachusetts neighborhood and town into thriving communities with opportunities for all residents.  That's our core focus and the program and services highlighted here help us to meet and to exceed our goals.
