FY22 Local Priorities
The Northfield Cultural Council aims to support programs that benefit Northfield Residents and/or highlight the talents of community members. In order to support as many projects as possible with a limited budget, the council rarely awards grants over $500.
In addition to the LCC guidelines, the Northfield Cultural Council requests written commitment from the venue and performer(s) if applicable. For example; if you are applying for a grant for a children’s concert by someone other than yourself at a local business, we would like to see something that shows us that the performer is willing to be there, and something from the business saying they are willing to host the event.
Please be as specific as possible when describing your project or event. Uploaded photos, or scanned images of fliers and brochures and/or links to applicable websites are appreciated and valued.
Up to three documents can be uploaded directly into the application. Please see the Supplemental Materials section on the application for tips on merging multiple documents into one and/or use links in the text of your application when possible.
