The Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund is a grant program that supports the planning and implementation of capital projects in the arts, humanities, and sciences. These projects expand access and education; create jobs in construction, benefit cultural tourism, and improve the quality of life in cities and towns across the Commonwealth.
Administered jointly by the Mass Cultural Council and MassDevelopment, the Cultural Facilities Fund is open to nonprofit cultural organizations, municipalities, and higher education institutions whose cultural facilities serve the general public.
The FY20 Cultural Facilities Fund program guidelines are now available. Applications go live on Friday, October 11, 2019.
SpaceFinder Mass is like an Airbnb for cultural spaces. It’s a discovery tool for anyone looking to rent a creative space in Massachusetts.
Renters can find available, affordable, and alternative spaces for performances, rehearsals, readings, meetings, and more.
The second year of EBT Card to Culture showed continued growth and enthusiasm. Feedback from EBT cardholders has been incredibly positive and touching. Organizations report many new visitors through the program, and the return of patrons who hadn’t been able to visit in years.
Organizations funded through Mass Cultural Council’s Cultural Investment Portfolio have been participating in the DataArts platform for about a decade. DataArts has used that information to provide data-informed insights and resources to the arts and cultural sector – for grantmakers, researchers, and individual organizations.
