East Bridgewater Arts Council

The East Bridgewater Arts Council believes in creating access to the diverse programs offered by our local community partners, including but not limited to the Council on Aging, Public Schools, and Public Library. We are a group of volunteers from the town of East Bridgewater that believe in supporting programs focused on the Arts, Humanities, Culture, and Interpretive Sciences. These programs are open to the town of East Bridgewater and surrounding Communities. The council evaluates cultural needs and establishes priorities to perform its primary function of re-granting funds allocated to us by the Massachusetts Cultural Council. All grant submissions are reviewed by Arts Council members and voted on accordingly

FY23 Allocation

FY23 Local Priorities

Our local guidelines are based on and exist in addition to the Massachusetts Cultural Council State Guidelines, which are found in the LCC Program Guidelines tab.

1. East Bridgewater based applicants will be given preference over out of town applicants. Funded events should take place in East Bridgewater, or at least be easily accessible to East Bridgewater residents.
2. Applicants must provide written documentation of a confirmed request for the performance, or a confirmed venue and/or date, from the sponsoring organization.
3. Projects must demonstrate their relationship to the town; they must show a direct benefit to East Bridgewater residents.
4. Proposals from schools, libraries and municipal agencies: only enrichment projects utilizing outside professionals are allowed, due to the No Substitution criteria found in the state guidelines. All applicants proposing to work in the E.B. public schools must receive and document approval from the Superintendent of Schools or the building Principal.
5. Funded activities and events must take place in locations that are accessible to persons with disabilities including the content of the program.
6. The track record of the applicant will be strongly considered.
7. Non-Dependence: Since the local council funding is not intended to be used as the sole source of funding for projects of a continuing nature, the Council will carefully scrutinize repeat requests. The LCC may consider awarding graduated, decreased funding to any applicant and/or organization that seeks funding for similar type projects on an annual basis. Receipt of LCC funding in the current granting year does not guarantee funding in subsequent years.
8. Applicants who apply for grants for projects that have already taken place (from July 1 of this year onward), do so with the knowledge that funding is not guaranteed.
