FY23 Allocation


FY23 Local Priorities

Based upon the highly successful response to our most recent Public Survey, we have established our priorities for this coming year to include artists who will provide family-oriented entertainment, musical and vocal presentations, poetry, guest speakers, and classical music concerts; and that these presentations will provide value to Holliston town members. That is, we provide support for projects that take place in Holliston or in nearby towns.

FY23 Local Guidelines

Grants must be submitted through the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s website. We provide full funding in many cases, but partial funding in some cases. Please contact the chairperson, Steve Durning, at with questions.
