Funding available to support artists, schools, organizations for 2022 is now available.
The Local Cultural Council (LCC) Grant Program is funded and overseen by the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC). Somerville LCC program grants are reviewed by SAC board members and local peers with expertise in the appropriate disciplines. Each year new panelists are convened to review new submissions. Grants are available for projects in the community, individual fellowships, and support to schools for art projects or cultural field trips.
Applicants must follow our local guidelines each new year but submit via the MCC online portal.
Our guidelines can be found here. The deadline to submit has been extended to Monday, Nov. 1st, 2021, 11:59 pm.
Applicants may call the office and speak with Rachel Strutt, Cultural Director, who is available to assist with project design, facilitate collaboration between artists and organizations, and answer questions about the grant process, both before and after the Council makes its awards.
