The Foundation for MetroWest, which serves 33 cities and towns of MetroWest, has announced $150,000 in grants to nine local arts and culture nonprofits. The grants of up to $25,000 each are intended for general operating support, program support, and capacity building efforts.
Among the recipients is Natick’s TCAN, which has had a rough go of it this year without the ability to offer much in the way of in-person events aside from films. The recipients were selected from 45 applicants.
TCAN plans to use its funds to install professional-grade video equipment to offer live performances virtually to expand audience capacity and generate supplemental program revenue.
