Grants to Massachusetts nonprofit arts organizations, faith-based organizations, public agencies, libraries, schools, artist groups, and individual artists in eligible regions for arts activities that benefit local residents. Grant funds may be requested for public arts programs or to support arts and cultural field trips. Applicants must be based in Cambridge and activities should benefit those who live and work in Cambridge.
Cambridge Arts participates in the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s annual Local Cultural Council grant program, which offers funding to individuals and organizations for cultural projects, public art, ticket subsidy programs, cultural field trips for children, and other activities.
The funds may only be used to support programs in the arts, humanities, and interpretive sciences in Cambridge. This definition includes the study, pursuit, performance, exhibition, and appreciation of cultural activities.
Projects must demonstrate a community benefit. Funds support activities that contribute to the cultural vitality of the community as a whole, rather than benefiting any one private individual or group. This does not mean that a large audience needs to participate in order to satisfy the requirement of community benefit.
Please Note: All projects created with funding through this grant program should follow City and State guidelines for public health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.
