FY22 Local Priorities
We look for applications providing arts and cultural programs in public venues in Newbury, as well as those in neighboring communities, that offer cultural experiences for our residents. We strive to fund programs that serve a wide variety of people and interests, and especially those that offer the potential to bring the community together.
To be considered for funding, grant applications should include venue specifics, details about the program, intended audience, and a clear mission for serving the Newbury community.
