And Now for the Good News

On the heels of the news of budget cuts at the Mass Cultural Council, we now get the announcement that in 2009 they will be granting 12.5 Million from their Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund.

This from the press release:

CFF grants support Massachusetts nonprofit cultural organizations with building projects that increase tourism, create new jobs, leverage private funding, and expand arts and cultural activities in communities across the state. The latest round of CFF grants was made possible by a $6.5 million appropriation by the Legislature in July 2008 as part of the FY 2009 state budget, and a $7 million allocation by the Governor in April as part of a 2009 capital bond.

For theatre, the big news is Chelsea Theatrzone, (now Apollinaire,) with a $270,000 dollar grant.
