Using MAACLink, Project Topeka Community Fund Drive agencies have access to a database of clients and their services that is shared with other MAACLink users in their community. This information-sharing across geographic and political boundaries creates a "virtual social service agency" in a community. This access achieves the following:

  • Reduction of duplication of services
  • Confirms eligibility for services
  • Limited assistance resources are stretched to meet the needs of the greatest number of eligible clients
  • Information about unmet needs is captured
  • Reports on services, programs, and outcomes can be easily generated
  • Comparative data can evaluate the community's response to the needs of low-income citizens and thus generating more funding for communities
