The LCC met Dec. 3, 2014 at the Lunenburg Public Library to decide grant distribution for this year's cycle (2015). All rejection and acceptance letters were mailed by Dec. 30th.
Proposals for community-oriented arts, humanities, and science programs are due by October 15, 2015.
The Lunenburg Cultural Council has set an October 15 postmark deadline for organizations, schools and individuals to apply for grants that support cultural activities in the community.
These grants can support a variety of artistic projects and activities in Lunenburg -- including exhibits, festivals, field trips, short-term artist residencies or performances in schools, workshops and lectures.
The Lunenburg Cultural Council is part of a network of 329 Local Cultural Councils serving all 351 cities and towns in the Commonwealth. The LCC Program is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation, supporting thousands of community-based projects in the arts, sciences and humanities every year. The state legislature provides an annual appropriation to the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, which then allocates funds to each community.
This year, the Lunenburg Cultural Council will distribute about $4,700 in grants. These funds are granted to qualified individuals and organizations to support cultural projects that benefit the community. Application forms and more information about the Local Cultural Council Program are available online at http://www.mass-culture.org/lcc_public.aspx.
