Legislature Holds Hearing on American Rescue Plan Act Funding

On Thursday September 9, the Joint Committee on Ways and Means and the House Committee on Federal Stimulus and Census Oversight held a hearing on the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Funding, focusing on the areas of Economic Development - including Arts and Tourism. 

This is an important step in our shared advocacy for recovery and growth of the arts and cultural sector. 

MASSCreative testified at the hearing supporting the report submitted by the Special Legislative Commission on COVID-19 Cultural Impact. The report recommends $575 million for arts and cultural recovery over the next four years. MASSCreative will also urge the Legislature to include $375 million in immediate recovery funding in any legislation considered this fall. 

But we need your voice in order to make our advocacy heard.

We need to make sure that the Committee and Legislators know we all support the equitable recovery and growth of the arts and cultural sector for all in Massachusetts. It's time to #ReviveMAArtsandCulture.
