Local Cultural Council Program

Mass Cultural Council funds and manages a network of 329 Local Cultural Councils across the state, representing every city and town in the Commonwealth. Each council awards money based on individual community cultural needs, assessed and set by council members. Applicants should apply directly to local councils.

Interested in applying?

  1. Read more about the LCC Program.

  2. Review state application guidelines and application process.

  3. Check out the Council’s Priorities (type the LCC’s name into the yellow “Find Your LCC” box) and complete the online application by December 14, 2020.

Please note: grants from most LCCs are reimbursement-based. (The applicant expends their own money, and if approved for a grant, then submits paperwork for reimbursement.)
