Updates and New this year Mayor Martin J. Walsh has committed to matching the funds provided by the Massachusetts Cultural Council for the 2015 grant funding cycle from the City of Boston’s budget. The BCC’s budget for Fiscal Year 2015 is $163,080, a 6% increase of $11,060 over Fiscal Year 2014. In an effort to provide funding to greater number of organizations, the following changes have been made to the BCC funding priorities in 2015. • Organizations not based in the City of Boston but whose primary programming take place in Boston will be eligible for funding. • Project specific grants are now eligible for funding. Projects must exhibit a tangible benefit to the City of Boston. Example- performance, workshop, festival, exhibitions, demonstration. • Organizations that received a FY14 BCC grant ARE eligible to apply to the BCC in FY15. • Disciplines will not be rotated in FY15. Our next Grant Information Workshop is scheduled for: Friday, October 3, 2014 1:00-3:30PM Commonwealth Salon Boston Public Library/Copley 1st floor McKim Building Boston MA 02116 (Dartmouth Street entrance)
