FY23 Local Priorities

Marion’s number one priority is to promote access to MCC funds to projects that will directly improve the quality of life for those living in and around the town of Marion.

Using data from our latest community input survey (August 2022) the council will prioritize the following when making decisions using the top responses from Marion citizens.

1) The grant will directly benefit a significant amount of Marion’s residence.
2) Community-wide gatherings/festivals
3) Performing arts
4) Visual arts
5) Educational Programs and field trips for local schools
6) Nature and environmental education projects / STEM-related projects
7) Projects celebrating local history and cultural diversity
8) Public Art (such as sculptures, etc.)
9) Art education
10) Education/lectures

We will also be considering funding for projects that prioritize specific segments of the community:
1) Families
2) Children
3) Seniors, particularly reduced-rate events
4) Adults
5) Persons with disabilities
6) Minorities
7) Communities of immigrants
