FY23 Allocation


FY23 Local Priorities

The Newbury Cultural Council looks for applications providing cultural programs in public venues throughout Newbury and neighboring communities. We are keen to support cultural experiences for all Newbury residents. We strive to fund programs that serve a wide variety of people and interests, and are especially focused on those that offer the potential to bring the community together.

To be considered for funding, grant applications must include venue specifics, details about the program, intended audience, and a clear mission for serving the Newbury community.
