Mansfield Local Cultural Council awards grants | #vacation | #seniors | #elderly

Mansfield Local Cultural Council chair Eileen Cusack announced the award of 30 grants totaling $17,130, for cultural programs that benefit Mansfield residents. 

The MLCC is part of a network of 329 local cultural councils serving all 351 cities and towns in the commonwealth. The LCC Program is a grassroots cultural funding network, supporting thousands of community-based projects in the arts, sciences and humanities every year. The state legislature provides an annual appropriation to the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency, which then allocates funds to each community. The Mansfield Council receives an allocation from the town of Mansfield as well. 

Statewide, nearly $16.3 million will be distributed by local cultural councils in 2021 for activities including concerts and exhibitions for schoolchildren and seniors, after-school youth programs, writing workshops, diversity and inclusion efforts, historical preservation efforts, lectures, nature and science education programs for families and town festivals.
