FY22 Local Priorities

Whitman Council Priorities

The Whitman Cultural Council gathered input from the community in August 2021 and developed funding priorities based on this feedback. This year the Whitman Cultural Council will give priority to:

– Applicants that have secured a local venue such as Whitman Public Library, Council on Aging, Town Park (contact Town Administrator or DPW) or one of our public schools.

– Projects that serve multi-generations

– Projects that focus on: Art education in schools, and community wide events such as music, theater and festivals.

In addition to the state criteria applications will be evaluated using the following review criteria:

– How well the program meets our local priorities

– Community support and involvement

– Evidence of track record and dedication of the applicant

– Ability to address the diverse cultural needs of a community’s underserved populations or support diverse forms of cultural activities

– Financial needs

– Demonstrated planning
