FY24 Local Guidelines
1) In order to determine which grant programs to support we will:
a) analyze responses from our community surveys and
b) determine attendance from the grant programs
2) In order to determine which grant applications to support we will consider the following:
a) the event or program must be accessible to persons with disabilities;
b) the application must include the date, the time and exact location of the event/project, with a commitment from the venue; and
c) the application must include a description of promotional materials. The materials must include, the date, time and exact location of the event/project, the Medway Cultural Council and Massachusetts Cultural Council logos and a credit line, acknowledging their support.
3) Based on the grant applications, the Medway Cultural Council may choose to fully fund a few proposals or partially fund many.
4) The Medway Cultural Council may limit the number of years any one applicant can come back consecutively for funding for the same event/program.
5) While ensuring compliance with the guidelines set forth by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the Medway Cultural Council may determine what aspects of event/project are eligible for funding, e.g. tickets, travel, materials.
