Main Street Programs

We Are Main Street America

Main Street America programs – Coordinating Programs, Accredited Programs, and Affiliate Programs – are working day in day out to transform communities, celebrate historic character, and revitalize local economies across the country.


The Programs

What sets Main Street America™ apart is the powerful network: the unique combination of grassroots dedication to comprehensively improving quality of life at the local level, integral support and expertise provided by Coordinating Programs at the city, county, and state level, and leadership and direction from the National Main Street Center (NMSC).

Main Street America is also a special mark of distinction. It is a seal, recognizing that participating programs, organizations, and communities are part of a national movement with a proven track record for celebrating community character, preserving local history, and generating impressive economic returns.
