Mass Cultural Council announces the availability of CIP Projects grants, which provide a 1-year grant to support cultural projects that benefit the public. In order to respond to the unique needs of the cultural sector during these challenging times, applicants can either apply for a project grant for public programming OR for capacity building. Unlike the CIP Portfolio or Gateway, these awards do not provide general operating support. (A cultural organization is not eligible for a Projects grant if it will receive Portfolio or Gateway funding in FY22.)

Projects grantees will receive a grant of $2,500 to support a specific public project or capacity building project. Projects have to take place between June 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022. Applications are due on November 16, 2021 at 11:59pm (ET).

There are some changes to the Projects program for FY22, so please read the program guidelines and register for the information session on October 6, 2021 at 4pm.

Projects program office hours are also available:
