Collaborative Workspace Program Available Through Community One Stop for Growth

The applicants to MassDevelopment’s Collaborative Workspace Program will now use the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ new Community One Stop for Growth application portal — allowing for a combined review of applications to other state community development funding programs.

The Collaborative Workspace Program provides grant funding to innovation centers, incubators, makerspaces, artists’ spaces, collaborative kitchens, and coworking spaces to accelerate the pace of new business formation, job formation, and entrepreneurial activity in communities.

Owners and operators of collaborative workspaces may apply for either fit-out grants of up to $100,000 for new equipment or building improvements, or seed grants of up to $15,000 for planning money to advance the development of new collaborative workspaces.

To get started, we encourage you to view the virtual training sessions.

The optional, but highly encouraged, Expression of Interest form is also now available and can be submitted anytime through March 18. Submitting this form gives you an opportunity to receive early guidance on your application from program partners.

Have a question? Please reach out to Mary Ellen DeFrias.
