Rockport Cultural Organizations Secure Supplemental Economic Recovery Grants

Funding Provided through Federal COVID Relief and State Gaming Revenues 

When we created the state's gaming law we directed 2% of gaming revenues to the Mass Cultural Council to support local organizations. The Mass Cultural Council partnered with the Baker-Polito Administration’s Executive Office of Housing & Economic Development to award $10 million in federal CARES Act funds into the nonprofit cultural sector through the Cultural Organization Economic Recovery Grant Program. 

Today's grant awards will provide COVID relief to the next 24 previously unfunded applicants including: Rockport Music, Inc. Rockport $50,000 Windhover Center for Performing Arts. Rockport $3,000
