Announcements and News from the Council
:  

The Millville Cultural Council will be accepting applications for the 2018 grant cycle through Monday, October 15, 2018.   For online application information go to http://www.massculturalcouncil.org/applications/lccapp.asp .  If there are any additional questions please contact Heather Olson at (508) 254-8176 or send email to above address. 

Responsibilities:  To promote excellence, access, education, and diversity of all the arts through the disbursement of state funds to individuals and non-profit organizations for projects and events that offer public benefit in the arts, humanities, and interpretive sciences.

Funding Priorities:  The Millville Cultural Council gathers input from the community every three years and develops funding priorities based on this feedback. This year the Millville Cultural Council will give priority to: projects that support arts education and access for students to opportunities beyond what is available through the public school system; projects that serve families, youth and the elderly; projects that focus on Millville’s history and build pride in our town; and/or projects that encourage improved community involvement in the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences.

In addition to the state criteria (public benefit, non-discrimination, no substitution, focus on arts/humanities/interpretive sciences), applications will be evaluated using the following:

  • How well the program meets our local priorities;
  • Community support and interest in the event or program;
  • Evidence of the applicant’s track record and dedication to events in our town;
  • Ability to secure an appropriate local venue that improves residents’ ability to participate;
  • Demonstrated planning that involves local organization(s); and
  • Financial need.

Local Guidelines: Completed applications must be received or postmarked by October 15. Send application and support materials to the Millville Cultural Council, Millville Town Hall, 8 Central Street, Millville, MA 01529. Community meeting and grants help available; please contact MCC via email for assistance. Application deadline is October 15. Notification of disapproved applications will be made by November 21, and notification of approval will be made in January. Reimbursement requests are due one year from the date on the approval notification letter.
