Milton Cultural Council

The Milton Cultural Council is a local grant program of the Massachusetts Cultural Council. It is a grassroots complement to the agency’s centralized grant programs. Allocations are made to all of Massachusetts’ 351 cities and towns from the state-wide program to support community cultural activities. The MCC Program is the most extensive system of its kind in the nation to support arts, sciences and humanities. We review applications from individuals, schools, and organizations to fund after school programs, concerts, festivals, and other cultural activities.

FY24 Allocation


FY24 Local Priorities

Project grants are awarded on a competitive basis to encourage individuals or organizations to develop programs that benefit the Milton community, that are innovative and collaborative in nature, and demonstrate excellence. Applications are evaluated using our standard rubric available on-line. The Milton Cultural Council prioritizes grant proposals that celebrate diversity and inclusion, and it encourages projects that elevate the voices and experiences of historically marginalized groups to highlight the current and historical diversity of Milton. The Council strives to be an anti-racist, inclusive, diverse, equitable, and accessible body. Funding priority is given to Milton artists and organizations, to projects that originate in Milton, and to projects that benefit a significant number of Milton residents. Proposals that demonstrate interorganizational collaboration are prioritized. The Milton Cultural Council cannot be the sole funder of a program or project.
