Grants Application Deadline EXTENDED to December 14

The Grants Committee of the Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture announces an extension of its deadline for submitting applications for grants. The deadline for submission is now December 14, 2020. Grants are used to fund arts, humanities, and interpretive science programs to benefit the community of Arlington.

Annually, these grants typically range from $150 to $1000. The Grants Committee receives its funding from the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC), which has done an extraordinary job of advocating for arts and culture funding, helping continue investment in the cultural sector.

We need applicants! A recent study determined that cultural organizations reported $484M in lost revenue, and artists reported more than $20M since March.

If you are a fan of arts and culture in our town, remember to send a note of thanks to our state representatives for demonstrating support of arts and culture, and ask them to back the House Ways & Means’ spending recommendation for MCC in the final budget.
