Big grant helps after-school program

Milford has been awarded a state grant that will support an after-school program at West Shore Middle School.

“I am pleased with this grant coming to Milford to support much needed programs with short and long term impacts in our community,” said State Rep. Kim Rose. “Programs to keep our young students involved and engaged in diverse learning activities are important if we want them to be successful and productive members of society.”

Milford received $376,502 for the West Shore Achieves Visionary Education After-School Program.

The after-school program offers opportunities for community service, music, art, sports and cultural activities.
