Some issues reach across the boundaries of individual communities. Often they can only be addressed by working together. We help create a community people are proud to call home.
Who we are
MARC is a nonprofit association of city and county governments and the metropolitan planning organization for the bistate Kansas City region. Governed by a Board of Directors made up of local elected officials, we serve nine counties and 119 cities. We provide a forum for the region to work together to advance social, economic and environmental progress.
MARC is funded by federal, state and private grants, local contributions and earned income. A major portion of our budget is passed through to local governments and other agencies for programs and services.
What we do
The Mid-America Regional Council promotes regional cooperation and develops innovative solutions through leadership, planning and action.
