The Minneapolis Local Organizing Committee (MLOC), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was organized to fulfill local bid obligations of the 2019 NCAA™ Final Four™. Exemplary inclusion practices were a priority of the committee, its local ambassadors, and supporters.
This report summarizes the MLOC's inclusion spending from January 2017 through April 2019. It includes both "discretionary spending" and "restricted spending" applicable to MLOC operations in the region.
“The Council was honored to work with the Minneapolis Local Organizing Committee to both meet the needs of the Final Four events and create a connection and legacy for underutilized small businesses in our community,” said Metropolitan Council Chair Nora Slawik. “In addition to delivering fans to the games on Metro Transit buses and light rail, our partnership helped create new opportunities for our local businesses.”
