July 31 Policy & Action Review



Policy Update


MASSCreative continues to monitor and report on state and federal policy that supports equitable communities and a stronger, more inclusive creative sector. 

Learn more in MASSCreative's Federal & State Policy Updates, including:

  • Fourth Federal Stimulus Bill
  • State’s Economic Development Bond Bill
  • Extended Legislative Session




Currently, the State House and Senate are in conference committee debating H.4887 and S.2842, An Act Enabling Partnerships for Growth, which includes authorized spending to protect the arts and 

Cultural community. We’re asking our legislators to retain both the House and Senate provisions that would add $11M and $20M in arts & cultural funding respectively. 

Join us and write to your legislators today!

Republicans in the Senate have released their proposal for a COVID-19 stimulus bill called the HEALS Act, and Senators are now working to reconcile it with the HEROES Act passed in the House in May. Join our partners at Americans for the Arts in urging our lawmakers to pass the policies that would protect and aid the creative community during this pandemic.

Write to your federal lawmakers today.

Create The Vote brings the arts and culture community together to play our part for a more, inclusive representative democracy for all. Will you pledge to #CreateTheVote?
