School and classroom space available in Milford


As we have done in the past, we are happy to facilitate sharing information about office space. Temple Beth Shalom in Milford currently has an entire building for rent with two classrooms and additional larger space that can be used for a variety of purposes. For more information about this space, contact Marc Mann. 

Beautify your outdoor space: MassArt Community Build Program call for proposals  


The Massachusetts College of Art and Design Community Build program seeks to work with community organizations that have a small green space-related construction project in mind for a site controlled by the organization and can provide a typical materials budget of $15,000 - $50,000. For organizations that don’t have access to such a materials budget, MassArt is happy to collaborate on grant seeking and other funding opportunities. Lack of access to these funds should not be an impediment to applying. The program is seeking qualified proposals for projects in summer 2023 and in future years.
