Everett Cultural Council SEEKS FUNDING PROPOSALS for community-oriented arts, humanities, and science programs due October 17th. Community organizations, schools, and individuals are encouraged to apply for grants that support cultural activities, including exhibits, festivals, field trips, short-term artist residencies, or performances in schools, workshops, and lectures in the community.
Please note that only applications submitted online will be accepted.
Please review the state LCC program guidelines for applicant requirements
The Everett Cultural Council has the following additional local requirements:
– Priority will be given to events that will take place in Everett and/or are hosted by Everett-based organizations/residents.
– Priority will be given to projects that target the broadest range of residents possible, including under-served and diverse populations.
– Priority will be given to projects that cover diverse and unique subjects, topics, or fields that are not represented by other grants.
– Grants are available up to $1500
– Grant projects must take place during the calendar year for which the grant is given.
– The grant application must clearly describe why these funds are needed and what they will help to achieve.

FY23 Local Guidelines

The Everett Cultural Council strongly recommends that applicants:
1) Work with a local sponsor or venue. Applicants who do not live in Everett must have a letter of support from a local institution such as the library, school, or a community organization.
2) Have a detailed publicity plan for the proposed activity. Credit for ECC Funding must be evident at the event and in all publicity related to the event.
3) Provide a completed and balanced budget for the proposed activity. (Total project expenses must equal total project income.)
4) Serve the Everett Community.
Although the ECC occasionally funds projects outside of Everett, our primary focus is to fund activities that serve the local community and improve the cultural offerings for residents of Everett.
5) Avoid including transportation costs in grant applications.
