MCC Awards Grants to Community Organizations

In August, the MCC Membership Committee awarded grants totalling $1500 to community organizations in Madison. The money was raised during the 2011-2012 contract year, from contributions to the Community Services Trust Fund. These contributions are made by members, who sign an optional form and agree to add a small amount (usually between $1 and $5 per month) to their monthly rent payment. This year's grant awards were:

Welcome to MCC's new website!

If you are reading this, then you've undoubtably noticed that MCC has a new website as of August 2012. We're very excited, as this site has been in development for over a year, and integrates many features that members have been requesting. 
An introduction to the site will be part of the MCC Member Orientation on Sunday, August 26th at 1pm at the Madison Senior Center (330 West Mifflin Street).
In the near future, we'll have a tutorial document available that will explain how to use the site, and what some of the exciting new features are.

On June 26, 2012, MCC's Maintenance Coordinator Michael Carlson spoke on a panel about homelessness that was organized by the Affordable Housing Action Alliance. Many people were unfamiliar with the type of group-equity cooperative model that MCC uses, which is unique among low-income housing because it is self-funding, rather than relying on grants or public money. The Isthmus did a story the next day which focused on the idea of cooperative housing for people who have experienced homelessness.

Security Deposits

If members are moving out of your house for the summer, you will need to make sure that you fill out a security deposit accounting form for them. That form is due to the MCC office within 14 days of the member leaving, even if they leave before their contract ends.
