PLEASE DO NOT SEND IN HARD COPIES OF ANY MATERIAL. For all those organizations that received funding for the previous 2020 cycle, please read carefully. If you received funding and your program was unable to be completed, please keep the funding for the 2020-2021 year. You do not have to return the funding. Please make sure you inform Anna Choi, the chair of the Council of the program change for 2021 so we can change it for our records. You will also have to submit a Final report at the completion of the program in 2021. IN ADDITION: Organizations can ask for funding for equipment needed to make "REMOTE" artistic performances and productions feasible. We do not know how long the social distancing guidelines will be mandatory but would like to see our community have access to cultural events even through ZOOM or using other socially distanced measures. For 2020-2021 calendar year, North Andover Cultural Council is continuing it's participation in the pilot program eliminating the requirement that awards made using the Mass Cultural Council allocation be reimbursement-based. During this pilot program, we will be making grant money available in full to grantees once their projects are approved. If you are awarded a grant, you will be required to submit a final report to the Local Cultural Council upon completion of your program. For Pilot Program guidelines, please go to http://www.massculturalcouncil.org/applications/lccguidelines_pilot.pdf The goal of allowing councils to give direct grants is twofold: to enhance LCC programming opportunities by imposing less financial hardship on potential grant recipients, and to simplify the payment process for municipalities and councils. Participating municipalities and LCCs will follow the payment process outlined in the FY18 Supplemental Grant Pilot Guidelines in addition to the standard LCC Program Guidelines.
