The Cultural Council Program is a project of the Massachusetts Cultural Council and is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation, supporting thousands of community-based projects in the arts, humanities, and sciences annually. The LCC allocates funding within the Lowell community on behalf of the Massachusetts Cultural Council and supports both established cultural organizations and individuals. LCC funding provides economic support for community events that reach residents of all ages.  Past projects have included special exhibits, performances, festivals, workshops, educational programming and other cultural activities. For the 2014 grant cycle, the Lowell Cultural Council distributed over $58,000 in funding for Lowell arts and culture-based programs! For a complete list of 2014 grant recipients, go to and click the "Grant Recipients" tab.
The Lowell Cultural Council perpetually recruits new volunteer members. If you're interested in serving on the Council, please contact Suzzanne Cromwell at or 978-674-1483.
