In FY24 Mass Cultural Council will invest $5.5 million into the Local Cultural Council (LCC) Program, the nation’s largest grassroots cultural funding network.
LCCs provide arts and cultural grants to every community in Massachusetts through the efforts of more than 2,500 volunteers. They fund some 8,000 public projects annually that include everything from field trips to lectures, festivals, and dance performances. Mass Cultural Council allocations to LCCs range from $5,500-$297,200, based on a formula that reflects state aid to municipalities.
