Wellfleet Cultural Council

The Wellfleet Cultural Council (WCC) is a town committee of volunteers appointed by the Wellfleet Board of Selectmen. WCC receives state funding from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and local funds from the Town of Wellfleet plus our own fundraising efforts. We distribute this money through annual grants for a broad variety of projects in the arts, humanities, and interpretive sciences. This council accepts grant proposals in online formats.

FY24 Allocation


FY24 Local Priorities

Granted projects should:
• Benefit Wellfleet individuals and organizations
• Support local artistic and not-for-profit talent
• Provide off-season activities for year-round residents
• Promote racial equity and encourage diversity
• Highlight Wellfleet’s local heritage and unique natural resources
• Support emerging artists, start-ups, and new programs
• Be evaluated and prioritized to assure that the assortment of grants funded provide different types of arts and cultural activities: (e.g. music, theater, visual art, performing arts, literature, science, historical, and other types of events).

FY24 Local Guidelines

Please refer to the Wellfleet Cultural Council website for local information and support in completing the grant writing and submission process:

The value of the program/project to Wellfleet needs to be clear. Consider identifying who in Wellfleet will benefit? How many will benefit?

Preference is given to Wellfleet residents/organizations.

Preference may be given to local artists (Cape-wide as opposed to off-Cape).

Programs/projects must be physically accessible.

A venue, if needed must be secured and specified in the grant application. (A letter of agreement or more formal agreement is sufficient).

Your program/project must take place and be completed during the calendar year 2024.

Only one application from each group or individual will be considered. Please combine multi program/project requests under one application.

A budget should be clear; the council needs to know how the funds will be used.

Additional funding from other sources is preferred, or there is a clear plan to complete your project if not fully funded by council.
