FY22 Allocation

$6,500

FY22 Local Priorities

All applications and supplemental materials must be submitted online. No paper applications will be accepted.

Programs in music, dance, visual arts, poetry, literature, drama, the humanities and scientific interpretation for all age groups will be considered. Capital expenditures will be considered. Applications for programs that are normally funded by the town budget will not be considered. An applicant who has been funded for 3 successive years will have lower priority in the 4th year.

Priority is given to applicants who live or work in in Concord and who offer programs and presentations that specifically benefit a wide range of audiences in the Concord community.

We encourage applications for programs in the surrounding area if they would benefit Concord residents as well as other communities.

Priority is given to programs that have a proven track record or expectation of attracting or benefiting a large number of participants.

Level of Support: The Council does not fully fund any project. To demonstrate that your project is not dependent solely on Concord funding, you must specify other sources of financial support in the budget section of the application. All requests for full funding will be denied.

For examples of the range of programs that have received grants in previous years, please visit the Town of Concord website’s Local Cultural Council page under Boards and Committees.
