The Gaming Mitigation Program, established by MGL Section 59 chapter 23K, aims to mitigate a direct threat to the sustainability of non-profit and municipal performing arts centers in Massachusetts by providing capital to preserve their ability to compete in a new, unbalanced marketplace.
The program was developed over a two-year period with input from affected performing arts centers and included: surveys, three focus group meetings, a program development team that included representatives from organizations, numerous conversations with stakeholders by phone and email, and an eight-month period of feedback on posted draft guidelines. As a result of the public input process, eligibility requirements have been refined.
The application deadline is Wednesday, March 25. You can read the full program guidelines and access the application online. If you have any questions, you can contact your Cultural Investment Portfolio (CIP) staff contact, or Operations Director, Jen Lawless.
