Hudson Cultural Council Mission:
To support and enhance Hudson’s diverse heritage and cultural opportunities by supporting activities that enrich the lives of Hudson residents of all ages.
At the HCC, we begin preparing for the grant cycle several months before any applications are reviewed by gathering input from the community. Learning about what the Hudson community values and needs helps to shape our local guidelines and priorities, and ensures that we (the HCC) have the information we need to make informed grant decisions.
