Gov. Baker approves $2M increase to Mass Cultural
It’s official! On July 31, Governor Baker signed the FY20 state budget, and with it approved a $2 million increase in state public funding to the creative community through the Mass Cultural Council budget. 

This increase elevates the Mass Cultural Council budget to $18 million, making it the largest state allocation to the cultural agency since 2002. In addition to increasing public investment to the creative community, this final budget includes new language in the Mass Cultural Council line item ensuring that the state cultural agency will be able to continue to provide both grants and services to the creative community.
