Supporting Agency Collaboration Committee (SACC)

Established in 2013, the mission of the Supporting Agency Collaboration Committee (SACC) is to facilitate collaboration and build consensus among supporting agencies to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of MPT funding.

The SACC is comprised of representatives from a growing number of government agencies, private foundations, and other MPT supporters worldwide. Members of the SACC convene virtually twice a year to address field-wide gaps and challenges for MPT development, minimize duplication of efforts, and foster an environment that facilitates funder collaboration to optimize limited resources and support innovative and critical work.

View the MPT Priority Action Areas & Gaps, current as of December 2021.

For inquiries related to the SACC and/or the MPT Priority Action Areas & Gaps, please contact us here – we would love to hear from you!
