Funding available to support artists, schools, organizations for 2021 is not yet available. Due to delays in State funding the anticipated deadline is now Nov. 15, 2020. Applications will be available in early October.
In addition, the SAC offers grants specifically to Somerville schools in support of cultural fieldtrips. The Local Cultural Council (LCC) Grant Program is funded and overseen by the Massachusetts Cultural Council. 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.
Applicants must follow local guidelines for each new year.
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.
