FY22 Local Priorities

SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES RELATED TO COVID-19

Given the unprecedented circumstance caused by Covid-19, the Hadley Cultural Council recognizes that artists and their organizations are particularly vulnerable at this time. For the 2021grant cycle, the HCC’s first priority will be to fund events that will directly benefit the Hadley community while respecting current Covid-19 safety protocols. The HCC’s second priority will be to fund Hadley-based arts, science & humanities organizations for operating expenses.

2. Applications that reflect a diversity of disciplines in the arts, humanities, and interpretive sciences will be considered.

3. Applications will be considered based on a balance between well-established, frequently-funded projects and new projects.
