FY24 Allocation


FY24 Local Priorities

Local Cultural Councils grant monies provided by the Massachusetts Cultural Council to fund art, science, and humanities projects, performances, and activities.

The Buckland Cultural Council gives priority to projects that:
– We believe will be of interest to the residents
– Are located in Buckland or easily accessible by our community
– Are culturally diverse, historically inclusive, and bring focus to underrepresented groups
– Educate the community in local history, the arts, humanities, and/or natural sciences
– Reach a wide age range of audiences including youth and/or seniors
– Reach a large number of residents and are inexpensive to attend
– Include collaborations among arts and humanitarian organizations, schools, and libraries
– Rely on our funding to take place

If you have a culturally enriching idea, you are encouraged to apply!

FY24 Local Guidelines

Applications must be submitted electronically by the application deadline to be considered. The Buckland Cultural Council will meet soon thereafter to review applications and respond in a timely manner. Accepted applicants are asked to submit press for activities/events to the council in advance so that we can promote your programs through our Buckland Cultural Council Facebook page. We also require that you credit the Buckland Cultural Council in your written materials and at produced events. The average grant value in FY20 was $200.
