Interested in joining as a Main Street America Community Member? Read on to learn more about our designation process.

Main Street America Community Membership is an exclusive membership category. Eligibility is limited to communities that are currently designated at the Accredited or Affiliate level by their state, city, or county wide Coordinating Program or directly by the National Main Street Center. Members will be automatically moved into that category or prompted to join when designation is achieved. These determinations are made annually, and the changes take place February - March. 

In the meantime...

  • If you have an existing or past MSA Community Membership, you can renew your membership now! Renew online or download a form to mail in here.
  • If your Coordinating Program confirmed you'll be recognized as an Accredited or Affiliated MSA program in the coming year, we'll reach out with a direct invitation to join when we do our annual reporting process in the spring. You can also refer to joining instructions provided by your Coordinator.
  • If you're just getting started with Main Street, join now as a General Member to gain access to member resources like The Point, our digital library, and valuable discounts. Then, learn how to become a Main Street America Community - details here.
  • If you believe you are already designated for the current year and wish to join as a Main Street America Community Member now, please fill out this contact form. Someone from our Membership Team will follow up with you soon.
