Exact Creation Date



The Maine New Century Community Program was created in 1999 as the result of the collaboration amongst seven arts and cultural organizations in the state of Maine that were all part of the Maine Cultural Affairs Council (CAC). These seven agencies included both state agencies-the Maine Arts Commission, the Maine Historic Preservation Commission, the Maine State Library, the Mane State Museum, and Maine State Archives-as well as nonprofit organizations operating on a statewide basis-the Maine Humanities Council and the Maine Historical Society. The coalition received initial funding of $3.2 million by the . Maine State Legislature in 1999, and received reauthorization funding of $1 .2 million in the most recent legislative session ending in June 2001 . The program was designed to support a wide range of arts and cultural activities throughout Maine with the purpose of preserving and strengthening the cultural and artistic resources in the state.
