FFMW Received and Distributed $365,146 Emergency Relief Grant from the Commonwealth

Since March 2020 the Foundation has granted over $6M for pandemic emergency relief. We understand the unique needs of our region and are dedicated to addressing them through our grant programs.

The Foundation was proud to receive another grant of $365,146 from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development, in addition to the nearly $900,000 received in 2021. This program has helped us provide emergency assistance to residents in the region who continue to face hardships due to the pandemic. This was awarded based on the Commonwealth’s confidence in our knowledge of the region and our ability to effectively distribute the funding throughout MetroWest.
