Steering Committee

The Mass Redistribution Fund is governed by an Steering Committee of community leaders from Massachusetts. We came together across issues and geography to help unite our communities in this time of crisis.

Among other responsibilities, the Steering Committee nominates and vets all recipient groups and will allocate funds according to criteria collectively developed by Steering Committee members.
