About Scituate Cultural Council
Scituate Cultural Council (SCC) is part of Massachusetts Cultural Council’s (MCC) Local Cultural Council Program – the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation. Each year, the MCC distributes funds to the SCC, which grants these funds to local individuals, schools and organizations in support of arts, humanities, and interpretive science projects for the benefit of Scituate residents.
SCC is comprised of volunteers appointed by the Scituate Selectmen and are responsible for reviewing grant applications and awarding monies. The most-recent grant cycle awarded grants for projects benefiting the Scituate community spanning a wide range of cultural disciplines.
SCC partnered with the Town of Scituate, Scituate Harbor Business Association, and Scituate Arts Association in spearheading a successful application to obtain Cultural District designation for Scituate Harbor, and continues to support the Scituate Harbor Cultural District.
