According to the latest town manager’s report, East Longmeadow has received a $100,000 grant from the Massachusetts Gaming Commission’s “Community Mitigation Fund.” The town manager announced that

the grant will provide funding to establish a Business Resource Portal on the Town’s website to support local businesses which are trying to overcome the economic consequences of the pandemic.

Currently, there’s no such portal on the town’s website and no further details were given regarding the grant’s terms and conditions. I’ll provided an update on the program as more information becomes available.
