2023-2024 Grant Round: Planning & Design Phase: Population Projections

Into the Future

The 30-year horizon for municipal census population assists in determining the long-term viability of a proposed project in serving the needs of the community.

The UMass Donahue Institute publishes projections of population for all Massachusetts municipalities through 2050. All municipalities that submitted a Letter of Intent received the updated Vintage 2022 population projections and methodology report.

Another resource may be your local commission or council that serves as part of the Massachusetts Regional Planning Agencies.
