FY24 Local Priorities

The first priority of this Council is to bring the maximum benefit to the largest number of
Marlborough residents as possible. First consideration is given to Marlborough artists
and organizations.
The Council also prioritizes proposals that
 Expand access, improve education, promote diversity, and encourage excellence in
the arts, humanities, and sciences;
 Are well-researched and documented, with a clear and complete plan for execution,
including information about sponsors, funding sources, project location, audience,
dates, and cost involved;
 Demonstrate the willingness to present new and innovative programs as well as
maintaining existing programs;
 Do not rely solely on Marlborough LCC funding;
 Include logistics to ensure the safety of all involved;
 Demonstrate a plan to document, record, photograph, or otherwise make the project
accessible to a virtual audience
To be considered by the Council, the applicant must not have an outstanding Cultural
Council grant with the same proposal of programming.
The Marlborough Cultural Council will only accept online applications. Assistance in
preparing applications is available by emailing the Chair of the Cultural Council at
The Marlborough Cultural Council uses Guidelines established by the Massachusetts
Cultural Council on all other issues.
