MASSACHUSETTS CULTURAL COUNCIL ANNOUNCES LOCAL GRANTS
Local Cultural Council Grant applications are due October 17, 2017
The Medfield Cultural Council is now accepting grants from organizations, schools, and individuals to support cultural activities in the community. The deadline this year is October 17, 2017. Programs occurring between now and December 31, 2018 are eligible. This year all applications will be entered online at http://mass-culture.org/Medfield. This link should be available September 1st.
This is our third year of receiving support from both the Massachusetts Cultural Council and the Town of Medfield. So far this year we have given out over $7,500 to local artists and organizations, with more to come.
The Medfield Cultural Council is part of a network of 329 Local Cultural Councils (LCC) serving all 351 cities and towns in the Commonwealth. The LCC Program is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation, supporting thousands of community-based projects in the arts, sciences and humanities every year. The state legislature provides an annual appropriation to the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, which then allocates funds to each community.
