Agawam Cultural Council

The Agawam Cultural Council is an all-volunteer local partner of the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, and is funded, in part, by the MCC.
The ACC is charged with advancing the Arts in our community by dispersing state-provided monies via a grant application process. In addition, utilizing funds from our own fundraising efforts — including freewill audience donations — we have made it our mission to present a range of engaging, entertaining, and educational events open to audiences of all ages
from Agawam and the surrounding communities.

FY22 Local Guidelines

a) ACC Non-Dependency —
Because local council funding is not intended to be used as the sole source of funding for projects of a continuing nature, we encourage funding from other sources. In the first year of a particular program, we may elect to give a large grant. Over time, however, the percentage of the project budget coming from the ACC is expected to decrease. A good rule of thumb is that if the same project has been funded by the ACC at the same level for three years in a row, it violates the non-dependency criteria. When we say same project, we mean that the project has no differences or variations from year to year. A project may appear to be the same, but if it has a different theme, different people involved, or serves a different audience, it would not be considered to be the same project.

b) Applicants must have a Local Partner / Venue in Agawam. (A partial list of possible sponsoring venues in Agawam can be found here.)

c) Artists/applicants are not eligible during consecutive years.

d) The Agawam Cultural Council will also entertain grant requests to cover ticket and transportation costs for field trips for school-age children from schools and youth groups.
