MA Cultural Council cuts staff, grants

The Massachusetts Cultural Council has announced that it is cutting staff and some of the grants it awards in response to the 23 percent budget cut the state Legislature and Governor Deval Patrick approved for the agency in June.

“The MCC eliminated five full-time staff positions, cut administrative spending, and ended several partnerships and initiatives,” the announcement reported. “Taken together, these decisions allowed the agency to lessen the impact of the budget reduction and ensure that no organization, school, or local cultural council sees its grant cut by more than 23 percent.”

June 29, 2009: 23 percent cut for MA cultural council.
