FY22 Local Guidelines

What is the Billerica (Art) Cultural Council and its purpose?

We are a group of interested residents whose purpose is to support community-based projects and activities in the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences to benefit the residents of Billerica. We are appointed by the Board of Selectmen to dispense public funding allocated by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. We are responsible for informing the public about the availability of public funding for cultural projects and for reviewing and approving applications. The budget of the MCC is determined annually by the state Legislature.

Grant forms and guideline information for the 2021 grant cycle can be found online at the Massachusetts Cultural Council website: Big Yellow School Bus program). Please view Field Trip Grant & scholarship, No Substitution and Non-discrimination information on the MCC website.

Proposals are evaluated by several considerations: benefit to the Billerica community (including projects that may benefit segments traditionally underserved by cultural activities); creativity and innovation, quality of the activity, evidence of planning, qualifications of the individual(s) who will lead the activity, track record of the sponsoring group and clarity of proposal. School-related proposals must be for enrichment activities and not for programs, supplies, or salaries that should be part of the school budget.
