Boosting the impact of the creative community

On Tuesday afternoon, May 7, the Senate Ways and Means Committee released its state budget, and with it proposed funding the Mass Cultural Council at $17 million, which would be a $1 million increase over last year’s allocation. Given the powerful impact that arts, culture, and creativity have on our communities, we will continue to advocate for the previously requested $18 million and in support of the Mass Cultural Council’s work to provide grants and services to support the arts, humanities, and sciences.

Ask your State Senator to cosponsor budget amendments #686 and #832 to boost the impact of the creative community through Mass Cultural Council grants and services.
