MGAC Legal Aid

Do you want to see Economic Empowerment applicants and small businesses succeed in Massachusetts? The Massachusetts Grower Advocacy Council is asking for your support as we take the argument over the CCC's decision not to review Host Community Agreements to the courts.
Too many of the HCA's in existence today are acts of either bribery or extortion. This squeezes out Economic Empowerment and any other small business by way of throwing cash at a municipality via extortion or bribery. Help us stop this unfair situation, and support our legal efforts. Even $5 helps!
