Arts & Culture Grant Program


Through its Arts & Culture Grant Program, the Foundation for MetroWest has historically awarded grants annually that align with our vision for a vibrant community where artistic and cultural initiatives improve the quality of life and contribute to the economic vitality of our region. We promote rich cultural experiences that prioritize equitable access for all residents, foster connection and collaboration, and stimulate our region.
