Grant to help downtown effort

State Representative Cory Atkins of Concord says the town has received a grant of up to $10,000 from the Massachusetts Downtown Initiative Technical Assistance Program. The program provides consultant services to address and overcome obstacles to revitalizing a community’s downtown. “I am happy that Concord was awarded this grant,” Atkins said. “Investing in the revitalization of our main streets makes our community a better place to live, work, and do business.”
