Hudson Cultural Council

Hudson Cultural Council Mission:

To support and enhance Hudson’s diverse heritage and cultural opportunities by supporting activities that enrich the lives of Hudson residents of all ages.

At the HCC, we begin preparing for the grant cycle several months before any applications are reviewed by gathering input from the community. Learning about what the Hudson community values and needs helps to shape our local guidelines and priorities, and ensures that we (the HCC) have the information we need to make informed grant decisions.

FY23 Local Guidelines

Hudson Cultural Council Guidelines:
1. All applications for performances or exhibits must include the program date, confirmed venue, with a letter from a local sponsoring organization confirming the date and venue. A sponsoring organization is a person, group, or other entity that books, makes arrangements, and assumes responsibility for the performance, exhibit, or other types of programs. Sponsor letter should be on their letterhead.
2. The HCC does not directly book, make arrangements, or handle any logistics related to exhibits, performances or programs. Thus, a grant will not be considered for funding unless there is a local sponsor.
3. Performances must appeal and be accessible to the largest number of Hudson residents of all ages (e.g., accessibility to people with disabilities, cost of admission, etc.).
4. Applications which demonstrate widespread appeal to the Hudson community will be given preference.
5. Cultural Council Funds cannot be the sole source of funding for such programs.
6. When a grant is awarded, but the project has not been completed for any reason, the funds must be returned to the HCC.
