Stop thinking about it and apply! About the AFCC Now in its 35th year, the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod’s (AFCC) mission is to support, promote and celebrate the arts and culture of Cape Cod. It fulfills its mission by funding grants, fellowships, and scholarships; by increasing access to arts and culture in the region for all on Cape Cod; by advocating for more awareness on the impact the Cape’s creative economy has on our region and beyond; and by building a strong arts community network through membership and its Creative Exchange program. The capacity-building program is made possible thanks to a $400,000 injection of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds through the state and a $50,000 investment from the Cape Cod Foundation that the AFCC received at the end of last year. That funding has bolstered AFCC’s Creative Exchange program under which this initiative falls.
