Merrimac Cultural Council
The Merrimac Cultural Council favors local applicants with established venues or sponsors. We fund arts-related projects when feasible, and encourage new applicants or projects of particular interest to our local community. When reviewing applicants we also consider local needs, a balanced age range and scope of audiences, community involvement and diversity. We prefer to directly fund projects directly rather than supporting fund-raising activities.
All applications will be received online. We encourage any applicants that have difficulty filling out the online application to email us.

Merrimac Council Priorities
The Merrimac Cultural Council gathers input from the community yearly and develops funding priorities based on this feedback. This year the Merrimac Cultural Council will give priority to:
– Applicants that have secured a local venue
– Projects that have been sponsored (e.g. by library or senior center staff)
In addition to the state criteria applications will be evaluated using the following review criteria:
– How well the program meets our local priorities
– Community support and involvement
– Evidence of track record and dedication of the applicant
– Ability to support diverse forms of cultural activities
– Financial need
– Demonstrated planning
