Webinar: MetroCommon 2050 Community Engagement Mini-Grants @ Webinar
Aug 30 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

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 informational sessions and webinars from time to time to answer any questions. Applicants are strongly encouraged to participate.

After remarks from the Governor and Lt.

Afternoon workshops led by senior administration officials and local leaders from across the Commonwealth provide the chance, among other things, to dive deeper into these funding opportunities, think through the challenges facing your community, and hear from other communities looking to work through those same challenges.

Finally, you’ll hear from former Baker Chief of Staff and Harvard Taubman Center Senior Fellow Steve Kadish about some of the most promising strategies for working with community members and stakeholders to make the local change that our communities need.

Workshop topics include:

  • Building the Municipal Workforce Pipeline: Challenges and Opportunities
  • Early Education Reimagined: Funding Reform and Municipal Implications
  • Broadening Broadband: Expanding Access to High-Speed Internet
