Gateway grants are two-year operating support grants for organizations and programs with public cultural programming that benefit Massachusetts residents. Gateway grants are designed to be the entry, or gateway, to ongoing, formula-based, unrestricted operating support through Portfolio grants in the Cultural Investment Portfolio. Gateway organizations are a dynamic force for enriching communities, growing the economy, advancing equity, and fostering individual creativity. It will take an organization from four to six years to be eligible to move to Portfolio grants, depending on their success in the Gateway process.
