2017 Community Action Plan


In the last 6 months, we have obtained input from a number of sources to help us create a Community Action Plan which outlines programs that will be offered by IMACA in 2018 and 2019. The information will also be used to help develop a Strategic Plan for the Agency which will be developed in the near future. Hopefully this information will also be useful to other agencies and citizens as they address or try to understand needs in Inyo and Mono Counties. Please feel free to peruse the info and if you have any comments, suggestions or additional information – please contact us at and attend the Public Hearing.
