Application Information

FY24 Allocation


FY24 Local Priorities

The Leominster Cultural Council gathers input from the community and awards funding based on this feedback. Priority is given to applications from local artists and organizations, or groups that have secured a local venue (specific date, audience, etc.).

The LCC typically receives requests totaling more than the amount of money available for us to grant. The goal of the LCC is to provide funding to as many qualified projects as we can; therefore, most projects receive only partial funding.

The Council will make grant money available in full to grantees once their projects are approved and the required paperwork is submitted. In addition to the State guidelines, applications will be evaluated using the criteria listed in the section below.

FY24 Local Guidelines

1) The application must be completed online. NO paper applications will be accepted.

2) An application from a non-Leominster resident REQUIRES a letter of support from an organization/group/individual who resides in Leominster, OR a letter from the performance/project venue located in Leominster. This leter should clearly outline the impact of the program for Leominster residents.

3) The application encourages new and unique artistic/cultural experiences that benefit the Leominster community.

4) The application is a collaborative project between cultural and community groups.

5) The application shows a match of cash or in-kind services equal to the funds requested.

6) An application from a previous grantee may be denied if the Final Report for that grant has not been submitted within 2 weeks after the event is held, per State guidelines.
