The GKV Foundation in New York City has generously donated $30,000 for Mass Cultural Council to award.
We've awarded $1,000 grants to 272 individual artists and individual teaching artists, humanists, and scientists whose creative practices and incomes have been impacted by COVID-19.
Our governing Council has approved two COVID-19 relief efforts to help individuals and cultural organizations address economic impacts associated with the coronavirus pandemic.
We know that the COVID-19 crisis has caused major disruptions for the careers of individuals who earn income through their work in the cultural sector. In response, we have launched a relief fund for individuals.
Mass Cultural Council is prioritizing five action items to help the cultural sector manage financial disruption associated with coronavirus.
