The postmark deadline for applications is October 15
Applications are available at the Town Clerk’s office at the town hall, at the library or from any member of the Berkley Cultural Council. Application forms are also available on line at www.massculturalcouncil.org where applicants can complete the form and print it out. The library offers access to the Internet.
All applications should be typed and signed by the applicant and sent or delivered to the Town Clerk’s office by the October deadline. Submit EIGHT COPIES of the application. Programs must be specifically described with the names, artist fees, qualifications of the individual(s) leading the activity, letters of support from facility to be used and collaborators. Applicants must use physically accessible facilities.
Proposals are evaluated by several considerations:
- benefit to the community
- quality of the activity
- evidence of planning
- qualifications of the individual(s) who will lead the activity
- track record of the sponsoring group
- clarity of proposal.
School-related proposals must be for enrichment activities and not for programs, supplies, or salaries that should be part of the school budget. The Council carefully scrutinizes repeat requests; such proposals should include other sources of support to show the project is not dependent solely on Council funding.
Approximately two months after the October 15 deadline, the Berkley Cultural Council will inform applicants of their approval/disapproval. Approximately four months after the October deadline, the local council will confirm funding with all applicants.
Applicants have one year from the date of final approval to complete their project and apply for reimbursement. Extensions may be requested in writing but are not automatically granted.
An online application will be available September 1, 2016
