The Milton Cultural Council is a local grant program of the Massachusetts Cultural Council. It is a grassroots complement to the agency’s centralized grant programs. Allocations are made to all of Massachusetts’ 351 cities and towns from the state-wide program to support community cultural activities. The MCC Program is the most extensive system of its kind in the nation to support arts, sciences and humanities. We review applications from individuals, schools, and organizations to fund after school programs, concerts, festivals, and other cultural activities.

Funding Priorities

Project grants are given out to encourage artists or organizations with projects that are innovative, collaborative in nature, benefit the Milton community, and demonstrate artistic excellence.

Funding priority is given to Milton artists and organizations, to projects that originate in Milton, and to projects that benefit a significant number of Milton residents.

Proposals are encouraged that reflect knowledge of specific Milton neighborhoods’ artistic, humanist and cultural needs and are collaborative efforts with local organizations.

The Milton Cultural Council encourages grant proposals that celebrate diversity and inclusion.

Local Guidelines

Projects are funded for the period beginning September 1 and ending December 31 of the following calendar year. For example, applications due on October 15 2014 can include projects scheduled for execution from September 1 2014 until December 31 2015.

Applicants are requested to submit ten (10) copies of said application.

Please submit applications prior to October 15, either to the address listed on the Overview tab or to the selectman’s office at town hall. Applicants are responsible for ensuring that hand-delivered applications are stamped as received by the Office of the Selectmen.

Due to limited funds, the Milton Cultural Council can only consider applications submitted by a local Milton sponsor or hosted by a Milton organization AND support projects with a significant Milton impact. Applicants are limited to TWO (2) applications per grant cycle. Many recipients receive partial awards, and the Milton Cultural Council encourages applicants to seek additional sources of revenue.

This is a reimbursement program; no money is given upfront. Award money will be available to you only after you have completed your project.

The Milton Cultural Council grant process is governed by the requirements and regulations established by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
