Economic Development

The MRAC Economic Development Committee is committed to encouraging and empowering our community to become financially literate and economically self-sufficient. In fulfilling our commitment to Delta Sigma Theta’s FIVE-POINT Thrust, we seek to provide monthly programming, as well as quarterly and annual events to ensure education and exposure are provided to the community we serve and beyond. We do this through the development and implementation of programs that address the Financial Planning and Consumer Literacy needs of our community.
