FY22 Allocation


FY22 Local Priorities

The Norwood Cultural Council gathered input from the community and developed funding priorities based on this feedback. This year the Norwood Cultural Council will give priority to:
– Public and/or school programming that encourages sharing and understanding of
Norwood’s cultural diversity
– Projects Focusing on Public Art
– Efforts that support Norwood resident artists
– New applicants and/or for new projects and programming

In addition to the state criteria, applications will be evaluated using the following review criteria:
– Free or low-cost entry for residents of Norwood
– Financial need of applicant
– Held within the town of Norwood and/or benefit residents of Norwood
– How well the program meets our local priorities
– Demonstrated planning and thorough completion of application

FY22 Local Guidelines

The Norwood Cultural Council strives to support: (1) Individuals and organizations from Norwood; (2) Individual artists working in Norwood; (3) Individual artists working in conjunction with the schools; and (4) New applicants with new projects and new ideas. Further, we urge individuals and organizations that are not locally based to work with a local partner to schedule events and to secure matching funds. Planning is a critical factor in our decision to award grants and local partnership demonstrates planning. Events scheduled with definite dates also demonstrates planning and a commitment to our community. Securing matching funds, especially when working with the schools, means that scarce funds can serve more people.
