Apply for a MetroCommon 2050 Outreach Mini-Grant

Help your community be part of MetroCommon 2050, Greater Boston’s next regional plan!

The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) is now accepting applications for the MetroCommon 2050 Outreach Mini-Grant Program. We will be accepting applications and awarding mini-grants on a rolling basis until December 2020 for outreach projects to be completed between now and Spring 2021.

The purpose of the MetroCommon 2050 mini-grants is to fund community partners to help us with outreach, events, and collecting input in harder-to-reach communities. Voices of people from those communities will be crucial in developing the plan content and shaping the future of our region. We want to hear from the region, and we are providing resources to those who will help us reach underserved populations.

MetroCommon 2050 is Greater Boston’s next regional plan, and the process of developing it is being led by the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC). MAPC is regional planning agency that serves the people who live and work in the 101 cities and towns of Metropolitan Boston. MAPC will host information sessions and webinars from time to time to answer any questions. The first will be on July 1 from 10:00 – 11:00 AM at MAPC, 60 Temple Place, Boston, MA and via webinar. Applicants are strongly encouraged to participate.
