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.

In addition to the state criteria applications will be evaluated using the following review criteria:
