FY24 Allocation


FY24 Local Priorities

Applicants for grants from the Ludlow Cultural Council should be aware of the following priorities and requirements:

-Activities funded by the Council should occur within the calendar year that they were awarded.
-The project or program proposed must take place in or benefit Ludlow.
-Projects proposing to partner with organizations or venues should include a letter of support from the collaborating organization or venue.
-All applicants proposing to work in the Ludlow Public Schools must receive and document approval from the school principal.

-We seek to fund activities throughout the entire calendar year (e.g. in fall, winter, spring and summer).
-Our goal is to award grants that are inclusive of all areas of our community (e.g. families, seniors, adults, and children, as well different cultures and backgrounds) and to counter structural and systemic inequities.
-A portion of our funds will be used to create a summer concert series.
-Events that offer limited seating should give Ludlow residents priority in registration.
