FY23 Local Guidelines

**COVID-19 Consideration**

**The Mashpee Cultural Council recognizes the difficult aspects to supporting cultural programs in this time of pandemic.

Our wish is to be flexible in supporting programs in alternative ways. We strongly encourage you to apply for Massachusetts/Mashpee Cultural Council grant funding.

We know that it is challenging to continue programs, from the operational expense perspective, to the costs of developing alternative methods for sharing arts and culture, such as virtual programming. We expect to consider supporting many aspects of need. Provide as much detail as possible when applying. We look forward to reviewing creative grant applications in this next cycle.**

Applicants have one year from the approval letter date to complete the project and submit for reimbursement. Project must include the Massachusetts Cultural Council logo in publicity-related materials, as well as state specifically that funding was granted by the Mashpee Cultural Council.

Any changes to an approved project must be submitted to the council in advance for review.

Approval and denial letters will be sent in December, 2022.

Applications and related materials must be submitted ON-LINE only. No hard copies will be accepted or considered. See to create and submit an application.

First-time applicants, local artists and presenters are encouraged to apply.

Letters of recommendation are welcome.
