The Organization That Helps You Improve Your Community
The Missouri Community Betterment (MCB) Program, established in 1963, is designed to help Missouri communities enhance their life through overall community development, planning and implementation. The MCB Program accomplishes this mission primarily by lending technical assistance to communities; by officially recognizing the participating communities and neighborhoods; and by awarding those that excel in the program.
From 2008 to 2014 MCB Participating Communities poured $384,186,079.09 back into their local economies through their community development efforts. An annual breakdown is provided below. The numbers are from the annual judging competition Participating Communities can enter to receive recognition for their achievements. MCB has provided service to more than 415 communities throughout their history covering all parts of the state.
