The Rochester Cultural Council is a part of a network of Local Cultural Councils (LCC) serving over 350 communities in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The LCC program is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation, supporting thousands of community based projects in the arts, sciences, and humanities every year. The state legislature provides an annual appropriation to the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, which allocates funds to each community. This year the Rochester Cultural Council will distribute nearly $4,400 in grants.
