Please attempt to seek additional funding sources. Your assistance helps make it possible for us to approve several grants instead of a few. For example, our local schools seek funding from all towns in our regional school district. Consider charging a small fee for performances to offset costs.
Mission Statement: "The goal of your local cultural council is to foster the support of programs in the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences for Sturbridge, Massachusetts!!
All meetings are posted on the board outside the Town Clerk's Office. New members are always welcomed! Please contact Dale R Gonyea for further information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
New in FY17: Online Applications (even if submitting a paper application you will have to apply online as well!!)
Applicants complete their applications online and submit them directly to the LCC to whom they are applying through the online system by the October 15 deadline. In years when October 15 falls on a weekend or holiday, the statewide deadline is the Monday immediately following October 15. While all LCCs use the same basic application form, some may require supplemental materials from their applicants. These can be uploaded and attached to your online application. Before submitting an application, applicants should read the council's priorities for additional instructions. Council priorities can be found by typing the name of the LCC into the search box on this page and selecting the “Council Priorities” tab.
Unless a Local Cultural Council prohibits the practice, it may be possible to submit more than one application to an LCC. However, because the demand for LCC funds far exceeds the supply, applicants should first contact their LCC to discuss whether or not it makes sense to submit more than one application or to prioritize the applications.
If an applicant feels that a program will provide public benefit to more than one community, they may submit an application to more than one LCC.
In order to apply for an LCC grant, applicants must meet all eligibility and criteria requirements of the LCC Program.
For more detailed information, refer to the full LCC Program Guidelines (PDF).
An online application will be available September 1.
