    Thanks for the shoutout @northendmc! We’ve gotten so many good responses and inquiries about MTS Future First grants since announcing it on Feb. 18. We’ve received a few applications already and excited to go through them all – but we have to wait until it officially closes on March 30. Hurry, there’s still time to hand in an application
