Grants to encourage the development and success of the districts and to foster local cultural preservation
DEADLINE EXTENDED: Due to technical issues with the grants system, Local Cultural Council grant applications are now due by Oct. 19.
In FY23 Mass Cultural Council will invest $5.5 million — an increase of 15% over last year — 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 2,400 volunteers. They fund some 6,500 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.
The LCC Program supports Mass Cultural Council’s goal of enriching communities.
Applications to the LCC Program are now available:
The deadline to apply is October 19 at 11:59pm (ET). Don’t wait until the last minute to apply!
