Webinar: Vaccine Communications
Mar 23 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Local Examples and Launch of Shared Communications Hub

As the pace of COVID-19 vaccinations picks up Massachusetts, local officials, health organizations, and community groups are vital messengers to raise confidence in vaccines and communicate updates to Massachusetts residents.

With the tiered rollout plan and frequent news, this can seem daunting for municipalities and organizations big and small.

At this webinar on Tuesday, March 23, you will hear about municipal efforts to raise awareness about vaccines in ways that resonate with residents; and learn more about an online hub for municipalities and local organizations to share communications resources.

Looking to fund economic recovery and development in your city or town?

The Economic Development Administration offers multiple funding opportunities to help local governments, nonprofits, and other organizations serve economically-distressed areas.

MAPC helps support the funding process in our region and is available to assist with applications. At this information session, learn about the various grants available, find out how to apply, and hear from EDA grant recipients about their recent projects. There will time for Q&A.

We especially encourage community colleges, CDCs, and arts organizations to attend!

Funded projects could include planning and implementation projects that focus on economic development strategies, public facilities and infrastructure, and economic recovery. Successful applications must match MAPC’s and EDA’s funding priorities.
