About Us

Overview

mcap.psawire.com (a service of PSN – The Public Service Network) is an online media clearinghouse designed exclusively for use by state and local nonprofit and government entities. These client agencies benefit by receiving access to low-cost media channels that target their designated communities and coverage areas for the distribution of public service announcements (PSAs).

The mcap.psawire.com service drives down media prices by leveraging the aggregated buying power of thousands of nonprofit organizations and government agencies on a nationwide, regional and state basis. This means that qualified organizations can take advantage of rates up to 80% less than they might negotiate for use by their individual agency.

All PSAwire media programs are offered to member agencies at exclusive, low-cost PSN nonprofit and government rates.
