The JFK Hyannis Museum has received a grant of $2,500 from the Mass Cultural Council through its Projects Program. Specifically, the grant will support a program begun last year and returning in 2023, called Walks with a Purpose.

We are grateful that funds for the Projects Program was made possible through the support of the state legislature.

“The Cape and Islands’ arts and cultural institutions are not just nice to have, they are central to our lifeblood and economy,’ said State Senator Julian Cyr, pictured at the grant ceremony. ‘This grant will support the JFK Hyannis Museum’s Walks with a Purpose program, which provides an accessible exploration of the diversity within Hyannis’ local art and history to the benefit of locals and visitors alike.”

Mass Cultural Council has a budget of $15.7 million, including an appropriation of nearly $14 million from the state of Massachusetts and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and other sources.

Mass Cultural Council funds reach every community in the Commonwealth. Its mission is to promote excellence, education, access and diversity in the arts, humanities and sciences, to improve the quality of life for all Massachusetts residents and contribute to the vitality of our communities and economy.
