Grant for Homeless Shelters and Food Pantries


The Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts is the recipient of a Help Alleviate Hunger and Homelessness in Massachusetts grant. This generous grant is from an anonymous foundation in Boston that is partnering with us to distribute the funding to North Central Massachusetts food pantries and homeless shelters. The funding is earmarked for capital needs that a shelter/pantry may have, such as refrigerators, freezers, beds, tables, etc.  The maximum grant amount to be given to an agency is $10,000.  Applications will be submitted sometime in April with the awards being distributed in May/June time period.

Dates will be announced soon, as to the information sessions you can attend and, in addition, when the RFP will be open for you to apply.

In the meanwhile, food pantries and homeless shelters in NCM: Please think about what your capital needs are that could be funded by this grant. We are very excited to be able to partner with another foundation to support the important work you do to feed and house our brothers and sisters in our community.
