FY23 Local Priorities
Applicants for grants from the Ludlow Cultural Council should be aware of the following priorities and requirements:
o Activities funded by the Council should occur within the calendar year that they were awarded.
o The project or program proposed must take place in or benefit Ludlow.
o Projects involving collaboration must include a letter of support from the collaborating organizations.
o All applicants proposing to work in the Ludlow Public Schools must receive and document approval from the school principal.
o We seek to fund activities throughout the entire calendar year (e.g. in fall, winter, spring and summer)
o Our goal is to award grants that are inclusive of all areas of our community (e.g. families, seniors, adults, and children, as well different cultures and backgrounds) and to counter structural and systemic inequities.
o We will reserve a portion of our funds for grants to multiple musical performances to create a summer concert series. Bands selected should be available to perform Sundays from 5-7:30 at the Ludlow Gazebo.
FY23 Local Guidelines
We use the standard Mass Cultural Council guidelines
