The Holyoke Cultural Council (HCC) consists of members who were appointed by the Mayor based on their credentials, interest in the arts, and commitment to arts programming in the city of Holyoke. The HCC encourages individuals and organizations to apply for financial support for artistic purposes in its annual grant program, which is part of a statewide grant program administered by the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC). The HCC typically receives requests for grants amounting to more than twice the amount of money available for us to grant. We often have to turn down grants or award less than what was requested.
Applications must be typed and either hand delivered by 4:00 PM on Tuesday October 15, 2013 or postmarked by October 15, 2013, with a signed original and 19 copies for a total of 20 sets. Because of the large volume of grants we receive to review, we ask that applicants only provide one brief set of supporting documents. Applications can be mailed or delivered to City Hall, Office of the Mayor, 536 Dwight Street, Holyoke, MA, 01040. If you need assistance with your application, you may contact any of the council members listed below.

The HCC approval process was streamlined by the MCC. In January 2014, the HCC should have its funding from the MCC and applicants will be contacted regarding awarded amounts. Final approval from the MCC will not be required this year.
