FY25 Allocation


FY25 Local Priorities

Effective FY 20, Local Priorities include field trips, maintaining/expanding arts and cultural education, and community gatherings.

The Oxford Cultural Council will give priority to applicants who have listed a local sponsor on their application.

The Oxford Cultural Council will give priority to applications that are not virtual.

FY25 Local Guidelines

In addition to the MCC guidelines, the Oxford Cultural Council has established the following guidelines:

1. Projects should be of demonstrated quality.

2. Projects must take place within and/or involve residents from Oxford.

3. Prior written commitment from an Oxford Institution or Organization (Local Sponsor) must be obtained and contained with the grant application.

3. Any school or organization submitting multiple requests for funding must prioritize their projects. Otherwise the OCC will prioritize the requests.

4. We cannot be held responsible for applications lost in the mail. If an applicant can demonstrate that an application was sent by the postmarked deadline, the Council will consider the application on time.

5. If the event could be held with partial funding please be sure to specify that in the application.
