The Cambridge Arts Grant Program is funded by the City of Cambridge in partnership with the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC) as part of their statewide Local Cultural Council (LCC) program. The goal of the Cambridge Arts Grant Program is to support, promote, and maintain a vital role for the arts in the lives of Cambridge citizens in each of the city's neighborhoods in order to improve the overall quality of life and contribute to the economic vitality of our community.

Cambridge Arts makes annual awards to support access to professional arts and culture events for Cambridge youth through Field Trip Grants and supports individual artists and organizations through Project Grants. Project Grants are awarded in two categories: Creating & Presenting and Education & Access.
Creating & Presenting Grants support the development and/or presentation of visual arts, dance, film/video, literature, music, theater, multidisciplinary and new media arts.
Education & Access Grants promote in-depth understanding of and participation in the arts. This category also supports projects that increase participation of populations with limited access to the arts.
