The Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture Grants Committee has announced a grant writing worksnop to be held from 7 to 8 p.m. March 12 in the Robbins Library fourth floor conference room at 700 Massachusetts Ave., Arlington.

The ACAC Grants Committee supports public programs in the community that promote access, education, diversity and excellence in the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences. In 2020, 19 grants totaling over $16,000 were awarded.

This one hour workshop will discuss how to make sure your idea has proof of concept, determine what your budget should be and navigate the Mass Cultural Council application portal.

Members of the Grants Committee will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about applying for a grant.

The Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture Grants Committee is part of a network of Local Cultural Councils serving all 351 cities and towns in the commonwealth. The LCC Program is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation, supporting thousands of community-based projects in the arts, sciences and humanities every year. The state legislature provides an annual appropriation to the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, which then allocates funds to each community.
