Hello Massachusetts Friends of CDSS,
Yesterday the House Committee on Ways and Means released a state budget proposal that recommends $10 million for the arts, humanities, and sciences through the Massachusetts Cultural Council for the coming fiscal year. This is a
28% cut and would force significant reductions to grants for nonprofit cultural organizations, local cultural councils, artists, education, and youth programs.
This is important because CDSS receives significant, crucial support from MCC, as do worthy organizations in every Congressional district in the Commonwealth.
Combined with expected funding reductions from the National Endowments for the Arts & Humanities, state budget cuts could dramatically reverse years of hard-won increases in public support for the cultural sector.
