2020 wasn't what anyone expected. A pandemic, the resulting economic crisis, and a racial justice crisis left our network and communities reeling. Our members have met the many, unexpected challenges of COVID with resilience and creativity as they've worked with their communities to pull together and rebuild their health and wellbeing. See the ways our network is supporting their work:


How our network is responding:

Ask MACC   MACC Zooms In   Resource Hub
MACC members: get expert help on-demand to answer your people, financial, and operational COVID related questions. Ask us your thorny, pandemic-related questions.   We listen to our members and bring our network together to "Zoom In" on the issues that matter. Each virtual session we dig in together to the challenges facing our members.   This pandemic poses unique operational and service delivery concerns for our network. Our resource hub connects members to key legislation and helpful resources!


Advocacy & Action   Resilience Mini-Grants   2020 Member Survey
This crisis prompted our network to step up in new ways to activate and share the voices of our network. We'll continue asking for the practical support our members and communities need.   The MACC Resilience fund provides mini-grants to help members target critical, but often un-funded COVID-19 related challenges to program adaptation, operations, staffing, or financial sustainability.    We asked some new COVID specific questions in our member survey this year. We want to share back what we heard with our network and explore what it might mean for our work together.
