Developing Resources and Opportunities for People and Communities

The Minnesota Valley Action Council (MVAC) is a Community Action Agency helping those in need secure affordable housing, viable transportation, employment and training for employment, as well as creating educational opportunities for children. Established in 1965 under the Equal Opportunity Act, MVAC serves the people of Region Nine in Southern Minnesota.

MVAC is not part of the government, nor is it a political entity. MVAC is a private, non-profit organization that uses federal, state and local resources to provide assistance wherever needed. This assistance comes in the form of established programs in six main program areas available for people in low-wage work. Residents in need in Blue Earth, Brown, Faribault, Le Sueur, Martin, Nicollet, Sibley, Waseca and Watonwan counties count on MVAC for resources and opportunities that help improve their situation and quality of life.

MVAC Program Areas

MVAC Offices are open Monday – Friday  8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
