Grants Committee Awards 2022 Grants Totaling $18,515

Susan Larson,  Chair of ACAC Grants Committee (Arlington Cultural Council), has announced the award of 19 grants totaling $18,515, for cultural programs in Arlington (ranging from $280 to $1,154, with an average grant of $740). Grantees were chosen from 37 competitive applications. “We are continuously impressed by the caliber of projects presented to our council. This year’s grant recipients are equally exceptional, and we look forward to watching their performances, programs, and events unfold throughout 2021,” says Larson.

The ACAC Grants Committee (formerly Arlington Cultural Council) is part of a network of Local Cultural Councils (LCC) serving all 351 cities and towns in the Commonwealth. The LCC Program is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation, supporting thousands of community-based projects in the arts, sciences and humanities every year. The state legislature provides an annual appropriation to the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, which then allocates funds to each community across the state.

Decisions about which activities to support are made at the community level by a board of municipally appointed volunteers. Current members’ names can be found on the ACAC Grants Committee (Arlington Cultural Council) website. ACC’s email address is and you can find its Facebook page here!

The ACAC Grants Committee (Arlington Cultural Council) will seek applications again in Fall 2022. Information and forms will be available online here  and at the ACAC Grants Committee (Arlington Cultural Council) website here. You can read more about the 19 grantees here!
