This fall Mass Cultural Council is offering three grant opportunities for Massachusetts artists and individuals working in the cultural sector:

Cultural Sector Recovery Grants for Individuals
This one-time pandemic recovery program provides unrestricted grants of $5,000 for artists, creatives, and gig workers to support recovery from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and set a path for growth.
Deadline: November 1, 2022

Local Cultural Council Program
Every community in Massachusetts is served by a Local Cultural Council (LCC) that funds local arts and cultural projects. Most LCCs accept applications from individuals. Grants are a minimum of $250 and applications are made directly to each LCC.
Deadline: October 17, 2022

STARS Residencies
STARS Residencies bring students and teachers together with practicing artists, scientists, and scholars to create rich cultural experiences in the classroom. Any Massachusetts school serving grades K-12 is eligible to host one residency per school year and schools, teaching artists, and cultural organizations are eligible to apply. STARS Residencies offer a minimum grant of $2,500 and last a minimum of three days.
Deadline: October 25, 2022
