Cultural Council

The Local Cultural Council (LCC) Program is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation supporting thousands of community-based projects in the arts, humanities, and sciences annually. The program promotes the availability of rich cultural experiences for every Massachusetts citizen. Administered by 2,400 municipally appointed volunteers, the LCC network consists of 329 councils serving all 351 Massachusetts cities and towns. Each year, local councils award more than $3 million in grants to more than 5,000 cultural programs statewide.

This is a rewarding volunteer position that supports cultural opportuniites in the town of Erving.  Each year the council provides funding for many programs offered at the Erving Senior/Community Center, the Erving Public Library, the Erving Elementary School, and others.
