Purpose


The Westford Cultural Council is responsible for disbursing funds received from the Massachusetts Cultural Council to local cultural and artistic activities. The Council review proposals and grants funds to local applicants for a variety of projects that benefit Westford citizens.

The Westford Cultural Council is part of a network of 329 Local Cultural Councils 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.

2018-2019 Grant Applications Currently Being Accepted


The Westford Cultural Council is now accepting grant applications for 2018-2019 funding, through October 15, 2018. Organizations, schools, and individuals may apply for grants that support arts, humanities, and science programs in the Westford community. Example programs include exhibits, festivals, field-trips, short-term artist residiences, performance, workshops, and lectures.

All grants are reimbursement-based; if approved, the applicant will spend the money and submit paperwork to the Cultural Council for reimbursement.
