Blackstone Cultural Council

We of the Blackstone Cultural Council are a small group of seven members at the present time who are enthusiastic about bringing some culture into our town. We hold many of our programs at the local library but also contribute to music concerts in the area and they have all been well received and appreciated. Our members try to attend as many of the programs as possible and find our children programs especially well attended by the children as well as the parents. We hope to continue to service our community with the assistance of funds provided by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

FY22 Allocation


FY22 Local Priorities

The Blackstone Cultural Council strives to enrich the lives of our children, our general public and our senior citizens through new experiences and various venues regarding the arts, humanities and sciences.

The Blackstone Cultural Council gathers input from the community yearly and develops funding priorities based on this feedback. This year the Blackstone Cultural Council will give priority to:
– Applicants that have secured a local venue
– Projects that serve youth or adults
– Projects that focus on local history

In addition to the state criteria applications will be evaluated using the following review criteria:
– How well the program meets our local priorities
– Community support and involvement
– Evidence of track record and dedication of the applicant
– Ability to address the diverse cultural needs of a community’s underserved populations or support diverse forms of cultural activities
– Financial need
– Demonstrated planning

All applicants must reside in Massachusetts and must now complete their applications on-line at

Paper applications are no longer accepted.

FY22 Local Guidelines

Projects that are well-planned with a venue in Blackstone are preferred. While the Blackstone Cultural Council may give advice and connect grant applicants with organizations, the BCC is not the primary planner or advertiser for events that receive grant funding.
