The goal of the MCC Cultural District Initiative is to establish an area of town with a concentration of cultural facilities to: foster cultural enterprises, encourage business development, promote tourism, preserve and reuse historic buildings and enhance property values. The Massachusetts Cultural Council offers funding programs and technical resources to benefit these cultural districts. The MCC’s Cultural Districts Initiative was authorized by an act of the Massachusetts state legislature in 2010. Currently there are 32 Cultural Districts in the Commonwealth. Two are in Franklin County.
