Charlton Cultural Council

The Charlton Cultural Council is your Local Cultural Council, a small and mighty group which is responsible for reviewing and approving grant applications received on an annual basis in accordance with the Mass Cultural Council annual granting cycle. Over the years we have supported a number of activities and events that reach our entire community as well as surrounding towns. Our grant recipients have provided cultural enrichment in a number of areas including nature walks and plant identification, themed dance instruction, motivational talks, programming for the visually impaired, as well as a number of musical performances. In addition to awarding MCC grants, the CCC also holds an annual art show in conjunction with the Charlton Old Home Day celebration.

FY25 Allocation


FY25 Local Priorities

1. The CCC prioritizes applicants with complete performance and budget plans, a secured location for their performance, a letter of support from a Charlton organization is preferred but not required
2. The CCC puts Charlton artists, organizations and companies as well as local performances at the top of our criteria for selection
3. The CCC welcomes new applicants and would prioritize over repeat grantees, provided first two criteria are met
4. The CCC prioritizes partial funding of multiple projects over fully funding fewer projects, the CCC will consider multiple funding sources as identified by each grantee.
5. The CCC advances performances for the general public ahead of target audiences, with the exception of underserved communities. The CCC strives to support a mixture of diverse and inclusive projects.
6. The CCC will retain up to the state maximum allowed from each annual allocation to support our annual art show and other local activities; the annual percentage will flex to place the priority on funding grant applicants
