The Lexington Council for the Arts’ mission is to promote and fund community arts and cultural activities that will enhance the quality of life for Lexington residents.
The Lexington Council for the Arts (LCA) administers Local Cultural Council (LCC) Grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC). LCC Grants fund or partially fund proposals from individuals, schools and cultural organizations that meet MCC guidelines as well as LCA criteria.
Note: The grants are reimbursement based. (The grantees expend their own money, and after the project has taken place they submit a form to LCA for reimbursement.)
Beginning October 1, 2020, grants will be available for online submissions: Grant Application Information
Applications must be submitted online no later than November 16, 2020 to be considered.
The Massachusetts Cultural Council also has a lot of advice for grant recipients, including templates for publicity and properly identifying Lexington Council for the Arts as a sponsor.
