Municipal Oversight Committee

The Cumberland County Community Development program is a partnership between Cumberland County and our communities. This partnership is manifested by a governance structure centered on the Municipal Oversight Committee (MOC).

The MOC is a representative body with one member from each participating city or town. The MOC sets policy direction for the program and recommends projects for funding to the Cumberland County Commissioners.
