On Monday, July 22, Massachusetts lawmakers passed the FY2020 state budget, which includes a $18 million investment in the Massachusetts arts, cultural, and creative community. This is a $2M increase in funding over last year's $16 million Mass Cultural Council budget and the largest state allocation to the state cultural agency since 2002

In addition to funding an increase in state public funding to the creative community, the MA Legislature approved new language in the Mass Cultural Council line item ensuring that the state cultural agency will be able to continue to provide both grants and services to the creative community.

The budget now heads to Governor Baker’s desk, where he has 10 days to sign off on the plan.
