FY22 Allocation


FY22 Local Priorities

The Marblehead Cultural Council Priorities are based on our Community Input Survey and state guidelines. These results have indicated a preference to fund and support projects and development of local artists and cultural programs; arts in schools; historical, environmental and science education; community events and public performances.

All projects must have a Marblehead location, benefit Marblehead residents, and be accessible to the general public.

The MCC has voted to place emphasis on new, emerging and established artists and programs in local venues as well as culturally and racially diverse programming.

Programs that have received MCC funding for multiple years may have a lower funding priority in the future so that we may consider new applications. All funding grants are limited.

Each MCC funded project must be completed within the calendar year of the grant with funding expiring on December 31st of the grant year.

All grants made by The Marblehead Cultural Council are reimbursement-based. If you are awarded a grant, you will be required to submit a final report and supporting documentation to the Marblehead Cultural Council upon completion of your program

The Marblehead Cultural Council can only accept online applications.

FY22 Local Guidelines

We are open to all ideas. In order to be considered for funding, you must secure a venue in Marblehead prior to submitting your application. Applications submitted without listing a confirmed venue will not be considered.
