Human Services Grant Program

New Name, Same Goal

The Foundation for MetroWest’s Human Services Grant Program (formerly known as Family Support) awards one-time general operating grants on an annual that align with our belief that equitable access to opportunities and resources is central to a strong and healthy region. We envision a diverse and inclusive community where there are no barriers to accessing life changing or enhancing resources and services that improve the quality of life for individuals and households in MetroWest.
