Our Inspiration

The MCC receives funding from the MA Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts, and it distributes funds through:

1. direct grants to individuals and organizations, available through a statewide competitive grant process; and

2. distributions to local councils, which then regrant funds to individuals and organizations in their own communities.

The Chicopee Cultural Council is made up of dedicated volunteers who are appointed by the Mayor of Chicopee. Information about the Local Cultural Council (LCC) programs and all other MCC programs can be found online at www.massculturalcouncil.org.
