FY23 Allocation


FY23 Local Priorities

Priorities will include projects that activate our downtown – primarily the area that makes up the Maynard Cultural District. This priority reflects how hard hit the pandemic has been on our downtown and the need to support projects that reactivate those public spaces. It also ties into our goal as to facilitate more cultural offerings and to better communicate to the public about the cultural endurance of Maynard.
