Regional Economic
Development Organization

The Town of Monson was recently awarded two Regional Economic Development Organization (REDO) Grants from the Western Massachusetts Economic Development Council (EDC). One grant is for Events and Organization of Local Businesses projects, administered by the Monson Business and Civic Association (BCA).

Applicants can be individuals or organization wishing to produce events that would bring people into the town center. In order to be eligible, events must be new or an existing event that will grow as a result of receiving funding.

The BCA is currently accepting applications for funding through Saturday, December 10, 2022. Limited funding is available and grants are usually within $500 to $1000. Larger grants may be considered depending on the event’s estimated impact on the local economy.
