The Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC), of which the Marblehead Cultural Council
is part, has an extensive website
. Each year, local councils award more than $2 million in grants to more than 5,000 cultural programs statewide. Grants were directly awarded to non-profit cultural organizations, schools, communities and individual artists through funding programs that use arts, science and the humanities to build strong, diverse and livable communities. The beneficiaries of these programs comprise a cross-section of the population and citizens in each Massachusetts city and town.
