FRAMINGHAM — MassBay Community College’s new $58 million learning center that’s being built on Franklin Street has received a boost from the federal government.

A $2 million grant from the Economic Development Administration will go toward buying the latest equipment for the college’s new Simulation Center in its Health Sciences, Early Childhood and Human Services center that’s under construction at 490 Franklin St. The grant is a portion of Massachusetts’ allotment from the federal government’s American Rescue Plan, designed to support infrastructure and workforce development projects.
