Mid Central Community Action (MCCA) is a dynamic non-profit organization that provides proactive support, advocacy, and education for individuals and families in McLean and Livingston Counties.

Whether it be through providing housing for those in need or providing alternatives for those seeking assistance, we give people options and coaching to assist in providing hope for a positive future.
The 1964 then-President Lyndon Johnson signed the Economic Opportunity Act officially declaring the "war on poverty." Mid Central Community Action formed on October 21st as the McLean County Economic Opportunity Corporation (MCEOC) in response to the community’s need for a unified voice to address the economic problems in the Bloomington-Normal area of McLean County, Illinois.
In the last half of a century, MCCA has developed an extensive program for domestic violence survivors and is the only such provider in McLean County. We are the only HUD Certified Housing Counseling Agency and LISC FOC® in McLean and Livingston Counties. We are also the only agency that provides a permanent supportive housing option for previously homeless individuals.
