Grant Distribution Committee Welcomes 21 Members to Support Grant Review

To support the review and decision-making process for our 2022 Arts & Culture and Human Services Grant Programs this fall, we are thrilled to engage our Distribution committee.

Comprised of 21 community members, we are pleased to welcome eight new members this year to join 13 returning members. These individuals represent 12 of our MetroWest communities and bring a wealth of expertise, knowledge, and perspectives to the work ahead of us, including backgrounds in legal, nonprofit leadership, health access, behavioral health, educations, technology, finance, insurance, design, community engagement, and more.

The work ahead of the Committee this fall is significant as we received a record number of grant applications. We know that the demonstrated need for support in our region is directly tied to an evolving demand for services, programs, and spaces in our community. We are grateful for the committee’s energy and commitment to this important work!
