The Waltham Cultural Council makes LCC and Field Trip grants to artists, groups and educational institutions to help fund events in the arts, humanities, or interpretive sciences that will enrich the Waltham Community, per MCC guidelines as well as local posted guidelines. We support activities and events that appeal to a diverse population (gender, age, ethnicity, disability) and encourage diversity in performances and events. Priority is given to activities that take place in Waltham; activities outside of Waltham that enrich the Waltham community will be considered. New applicants are encouraged to apply. The WCC will accept applications from Sept. 1 through Oct. 15, for events that occur between July 1 of the application year and December 31 of the following calendar year.
The amount available for the 2016FY will be posted after July 1.
