Macomb County Inter-Agency Council (IAC)

The Macomb County Inter-Agency Council (IAC) was formed in 1964 by concerned Macomb County area citizens and human service agencies. Since IAC's inception, various programs have been established as a result of Council activities to fulfill unmet service needs within Macomb County.  

The purpose of the Inter-Agency Council (IAC) is to serve as a forum to discuss problems, concerns, and programs of mutual inter-agency interest in the County:
  • To inform members of important social issues and to implement actions on such issues where it is deemed necessary and appropriate;
  • To enrich professional growth within the membership;
  • To allow opportunities for communication and fellowship between members of all agencies within Macomb County and to improve agency use of other social resources; 
  • To acquaint all agencies and service groups of each other's functions;
