The Main Street America Evaluation Framework
The new Main Street America Evaluation Framework, developed by Main Street America (MSA) in close partnership with Main Street Coordinating Programs, outlines what it means to be a highly successful Main Street program and sets a path for growth and development for newer programs. Depending on achievement, score, and maturity, programs will either be designated as Affiliate or Accredited. Annual program assessments are an important opportunity for local Main Street leaders, volunteers, partners, and Coordinating Programs to come together to reflect on the progress of a program’s efforts and identify opportunities to build and grow.
Community Self-Assessment Tool: New
The following Self-Assessment has been developed as a tool to help Main Street leaders recognize how their program’s efforts already align with the new standards and identify areas for deeper focus and prioritization. The tool will also serve as a basis for local leaders to work with their Coordinating Program on identifying areas for capacity building, program development, and training needs. This process will also inform Main Street America on our network’s strengths, greatest needs and opportunities.
