Westford Cultural Council

The Westford Cultural Council is a town committee of volunteers appointed by the Board of Selectmen of the Town of Westford.

Westford Cultural Council promotes the availability of cultural experiences in Westford through the grant awarded by Massachusetts Cultural Council annually.

Organizations, schools, and individuals may apply for grants that support arts, humanities, and science programs in the community. These grants can be used support a variety of projects and activities within Westford - including exhibits, festivals, field trips, short-term artist residencies, or performances in schools, workshops, and lectures.

The Westford Cultural Council's mission is to enhance the quality of life in the Westford community by supporting arts, humanities, and sciences programs held in Westford, and by Westford artists, arts organizations, schools, and community organizations.


In order to apply for an LCC grant, applicants must meet all eligibility and criteria requirements of the LCC Program. Please refer to the documents below:

The council has used community input from Westford residents to inform the council's funding priorities for grant applications. Please click on Council Priorities tab above to see the list of funding priorities for the council.

All applications and supplemental materials must be submitted online. Supporting materials or documents as listed below must be included with your online application. Applications missing these documents may not be considered:
  • Venue location,
  • Date of event or project,
  • Local sponsor.
The council recommends that applicants consolidate:
  • same events held at multiple venues, or
  • multiple similar events held at the same venue.
Failure to consolidate such events into one application may result in denial.

No paper applications will be accepted. Applications will be available starting October 1st 2020. To apply to Westford Cultural Council, please click on Apply Now tab above.

There is an optional presentation meeting for the grant applicants to further present their programs to the council committees: Thursday, January 21, 2020 (to be held virtually - email for meeting information).

Level of Support: The Council does not fully fund any programs. To demonstrate that your program is not dependent solely on Westford funding, you must specify other sources of financial support in the budget section of the application.

Note: Grants are made on a reimbursement basis only.
