SOME Portfolio grantees may have outstanding requirements or eligibility issues that need to be resolved before the Mass Cultural Council is able to mail the award package. Grantees with holds will receive a letter in lieu of the award package in September.

*The reason for a contract hold must be resolved, and the grant contract package returned to the Mass Cultural Council by February 6, 2018 or the grantee’s FY18 grant will be canceled.

If the FY18 grant is canceled, the organization will be considered a “suspended” grantee, which will add additional requirements for any reinstatement of funding in the Cultural Investment Portfolio’s FY19.
