The Massachusetts Association for Community Action is a consortium of community action agencies that have provided two AFI grants since 2007, with the objective to advance homeownership, business capitalization, and postsecondary education.
This project emphasizes homeownership, business capitalization, and postsecondary education, with the goal of increasing asset building by four community action agencies in Massachusetts.
The Massachusetts Association for Community Action partners with Community Development Corporation, Small Business Association, IRS, FDIC, Citizens Bank, Brandeis University, Department of Transitional Assistance, and Local Housing Authorities for successful supportive services.
