The Arlington Cultural Council distributes funding from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, to support arts, humanities and interpretive science projects that benefit our community. The Arlington Cultural Council is part of a network of 329 Local Cultural Councils (LCC) serving 351 cities and towns in the Commonwealth. The LCC Program is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation. ACC is committed to funding a diverse cross-section of activities that support a broad variety of art forms, ongoing work of individual artists, projects serving specific local populations and local cultural organizations. Grant applications are due by October 15. Determinations are made in November for projects beginning in January.

If you are interested in serving, come to meetings and submit a resume/CV and letter of interest.
