Clinton Cultural Council

The Clinton Cultural Council receives grant money from the MA state cultural council and allocates the money to people or organizations who request them.

There is a grant application form available on-line to use in requesting these monies.

The local council reviews these grants and awards the money to those who fit the criteria of the grant.

Our mission is to provide cultural programs that would benefit as many Clinton residents as possible.

Application Information

FY24 Allocation


FY24 Local Priorities

The Clinton Cultural Council gives priority to events centered in Clinton first and then considers outside programs that reach the greatest number of citizens residing in Clinton.
When possible we encourage in-person programs.
We give consideration to qualifying applicants who haven’t been awarded grant money in past cycles so as not to always favor repeat applicants who meet criteria year after year.
Preference is given to applications with a definite program and location. Letters of support from the proposed venue are encouraged.
We are particularly sensitive to requests by the local school system and public library for field trips or cultural events that otherwise might not occur for budgetary reasons.
Only online applications will be accepted.

FY24 Local Guidelines

All applicants must have a secured venue, date, and time to be considered for a grant.
