Overview of the Grant Process

The application period for local cultural council grants is between August and October each year. The Wrentham Cultural Council will
only accept online applications.
https://massculturalcouncil.org/local-council/wrentham/ for the application and specific information.

Local Priorities

Applications are considered with the following priorities in mind:

• Performance Arts suitable for outdoor Arts Festival (Arts on the Common – Late Spring)
• Projects that are innovative, creative, collaborative, and community based.
• Projects that support established community cultural programs
• Projects that show strong planning and evidence of ability to follow through.
• Programs and events that bring diverse voices into the community.

Local Guidelines

We encourage applicants to team up with a local organization to jointly present a cultural project which has a specified program/event date, a marketing plan for attracting the target audience to the program, and a contingency plan for partial
grant funding. Keep in mind that average grants are modest ($300-$500.)

When preparing the application, follow the instructions carefully:

  • Answer all questions clearly and completely.
  • Pay close attention to the budget section and include the amount requested as indicated.
  • Please note: an applicant may not submit more than two project applications per grant
    cycle and each applicant is limited to 2 (two) consecutive years that a project can be re-submitted for funding.
  • Submit applications by the deadline.
