Project Grants are given out to encourage Milton artists or organizations with projects that are innovative, collaborative in nature, benefit the community and demonstrate artistic excellence.
Funding priority is given to Milton artists and organizations and to projects that originate in Milton.
Proposals are encouraged that reflect knowledge of specific Milton neighborhoods’ artistic, humanist and cultural needs and are collaborative efforts with neighborhood councils and organizations.
The Milton Cultural Council encourages grant proposals that celebrate diversity.
Projects are funded for the period beginning September 1 and ending December 31 of the following calendar year. For example, applications due on October 15 2014 can include projects scheduled for execution from September 1 2014 until December 31 2015.
Applicants are requested to submit ten (10) copies of said application.
Please submit applications prior to October 15, either to the address listed on the Overview tab or to the selectman's office at town hall. Applicants are responsible for ensuring that hand-delivered applications are stamped as received by the Office of the Selectmen.
Due to limited funds, the Milton Cultural Council can only consider applications submitted by a local Milton sponsor or hosted by a Milton organization AND support projects with a significant Milton impact. Applicants are limited to TWO (2) applications per grant cycle. Many recipients receive partial awards, and the Milton Cultural Council encourages applicants to seek additional sources of revenue.
This is a reimbursement program; no money is given upfront. Award money will be available to you only after you have completed your project.
All reimbursement requests must be accompanied by proper documentation which includes
- MCC reimbursement form
- Financial information showing funds expended on said project
- Paid Invoices, Canceled Checks and/or Receipts
- Proof of proper credit to the MCC
- And brief written summary of said event
Milton Cultural Council funds are not intended to replace existing public funds for programs in the arts and humanities, or to be used as the sole source of funding for projects.
The Milton Cultural Council does not fund programs that replace school-funded programs and activities in the arts. We encourage applications for programs that provide cultural enrichment. The council does not fund the same project for more than three consecutive years.
The applicant organization must also ensure a public benefit component in which the award recipient “gives back” to the community in the form of a lecture, master class, exhibit, performance, etc.
The Milton Cultural Council grant process is governed by the requirements and regulations established by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
