Applications for field trips are accepted. (Formerly known as PASS applications.)
LCC Program Guidelines (PDF)
The postmark deadline for applications is October 15
The committee hopes to fund projects which will be of interest to, and enjoyed by many residents of Bernardston of all ages. We support local artists and organizations from within our community and encourage applicants to be very specific with their proposed project details and planning.
The Bernardston Cultural Council will consider all applications. Forms must be postmarked or hand delivered to the Bernardston Town Hall by the deadline of Oct. 15th.
To be considered we require the following;
A definite venue. The venue must be confirmed prior to submitting the grant request.
We must have a confirmed date or dates of your event or program with your application.
If you are awarded a grant (partial or full), you are fully responsible for the creation and distribution of all marketing and publicity materials. All programs must be advertised properly.
We encourage all artists or persons to apply. It is important to be able to offer diverse programming in our town. We might not always be able to fully fund each application, but we try to consider as many as possible.
Due to the high amount of applications we receive each year, and to the limited funds we are able to provide, an applicant's chances of receiving funding are increased when the grant amount requested is below $600.
Application forms can be found at the Town Hall or on the Massachusetts Cultural Council web site. The website is a good resource to insure the most complete application.
Please submit 5 copies. Each copy should be individually stapled. Supplemental materials do not need to be copied. If you need materials returned please include a self addressed stamped envelope and we will be happy to return materials to you. You can also arrange to pick-up materials at the Town Hall in Bernardston.
Please read local and State Guidelines carefully.
We receive a large amount of grant requests and can only consider complete applications. We truly appreciate your cooperation.
The Bernardston Cultural Council.
Massachusetts cultural funds are not to be used to replace existing public funds for programs in the arts and humanities.
