FY22 Local Priorities
The Brewster Cultural Council welcomes grant proposals for interesting, innovative, educational, creative, or entertaining projects that will serve members of our community or the Lower / Outer Cape as a whole. Besides the intrinsic merit of the project, the Brewster Cultural Council takes into consideration whether the applicant is from Brewster, whether the project involves Brewster residents, whether the project takes place in Brewster or is easily accessible to Brewster residents, and if the project is of benefit to underserved members of our community.
The qualifications/experience of the applicant(s) should suggest that the projects will be carefully planned and be of high quality. The application should be complete, carefully proofread, and show attention to detail.
Applicants must identify an approved venue(s). Eligible programs must take place within a twelve month window corresponding to the upcoming calendar year. Applications due November 16 must be for programs that will occur Jan 1- Dec. 31 of the following year.
Budgets must be clearly and accurately constructed. Applicants should identify any other sources from which they have requested funds and list specific amounts requested from those sources, including other local Cultural Councils.
