Braintree Cultural Council

The Braintree Local Cultural Council (LCC) is made up of people who live or work in our community. Most have current experience in the arts and/or humanities and all known the community well. They encourage and evaluate grant proposals from individuals and organizations for programs that will educate, entertain, or enrich the lives of people in Braintree. Eligible programs include those designed for schoolchildren, families, older people, and other groups. LCC members assess the degree to which each request will reach the most people in our community.
