FY22 Local Priorities
**The Mashpee Cultural Council recognizes the difficult aspects to supporting cultural programs in this time of pandemic. Our wish is to be flexible in supporting programs in alternative ways.
We strongly encourage you to apply for Massachusetts/Mashpee Cultural Council grant funding. We know that it is challenging to continue programs, from the operational expense perspective, to the costs of developing alternative methods for sharing arts and culture, such as virtual programming. We expect to consider supporting many aspects of need.
Provide as much detail as possible when applying. We look forward to reviewing creative grant applications in this next cycle.**
