Grants to Massachusetts nonprofit organizations, municipalities, and IHEs for assistance in planning the maintenance of cultural facilities. A letter of intent is required prior to submitting a full proposal. Funding is intended to support surveys of building envelopes and mechanical systems conducted by a consultant, as well as the resultant systems and equipment replacement schedules created for the facility.
The goal of the Systems Replacement Plan (SRP) grant program is to provide small and medium-sized organizations with facilities of up to approximately 50,000 square feet and no full-time maintenance staff a tool to prioritize their capital maintenance needs. The Systems Replacement Plan will help managers and board members of cultural organizations get the objective information and analysis they need to address the cycles of maintenance and replacement for their facility.
Please note: Some cultural facilities are located in buildings with non-cultural/arts activities. The Council can only fund planning for facilities with arts, humanities and interpretive sciences programming.
With a Systems Replacement Plan grant, grantees will enter into contract with a pre-approved third-party consultant who will survey the building envelope (roof, walls, and entry systems) and the mechanical systems (heating, cooling, ventilation, plumbing, and pool filtration). The survey will provide the estimated usable-life expectancy and the approximate replacement cost of the applicant organization's building systems. At the conclusion of the survey, organizations will receive a 20-year Systems Replacement Plan which forecasts the necessary replacement schedule of specific systems and equipment.
Systems Replacement Plan Grants are a specific type of Feasibility and Technical Assistance Grant specifically designed for organizations without full-time maintenance staff.
All projects must provide evidence that they meet these five statutory criteria to be considered for a Cultural Facilities Fund Grant:
