Cultural Council

About the Shrewsbury Cultural Council

The Shrewsbury Cultural Council (SCC) was established by the Select Board on February 11, 1980. Cultural Council members are appointed by the Select Board for 3-year terms and may serve up to 2 terms. 

The Council receives funds from the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC) which allots a specific percentage annually to each local Cultural Council through out the state through funding generated by the state Lottery Commission revenues. The Shrewsbury Cultural Council utilizes these funds by awarding grants for deserving projects that take place in our schools, cultural organizations, community centers, libraries, elder care facilities, town buildings and parks; wherever our community comes together.
