The Mountain Association for Community Economic Development (MACED) works with people in Kentucky and Central Appalachia to create economic opportunity, strengthen democracy, and support the sustainable use of natural resources.
Since 1976, MACED’s commitment to the communities of Central Appalachia has shown that high expectations, vision and hard work are essential to achieve results. Three core strategies help MACED work toward its goal of transforming the lives of people and places in need in Central Appalachia through sustainable development: community investment, demonstration initiatives, and research and communications for policy change.
