Cultural Sector Recovery Grants for Organizations

In order to promote more equitable distribution of resources, Mass Cultural Council is focusing on communities in Massachusetts that fall behind other communities in several key measures.

Under-Resourced communities include:

    • The median household income is below the median household income for the state as a whole, and
    • The rate of educational attainment of a bachelor’s degree or above is below the rate for the state as a whole.
