About the Fund

A Surrounding Community Agreement (SCA) was a condition of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission’s gaming license approval.  Following the casino’s opening and throughout the 15 year license term, an annual $2 million payment is made by Wynn MA, LLC (Encore Boston Harbor) to the City, whose purpose as described in the SCA shall include:

  • Improvements to facilities within the City to facilitate water transportation and to fund staffing and other public safety initiatives related to increased use of water transportation in Boston Harbor related to the Project
  • Support of Charlestown’s nonprofits, parks, after-school activities, senior programs, job training programs, cultural events and related activities that promote Charlestown’s heritage, quality of life, recreational and cultural activities
  • Staffing and other public safety initiatives related to increased pedestrian and vehicular traffic in the City related to project following the opening
  • Any other impacts, including any transportation infrastructure impacts and the Sullivan Square Infrastructure Project related to the Project

When the Surrounding Community Agreement (SCA) was signed by the City of Boston and Wynn MA, LLC, a one-time $1 million payment was made and has been distributed to support over 60 Charlestown nonprofits.
