The Council awards money once a year to support artists, schools, organizations in Somerville.
In addition, the SAC offers grants specifically to Somerville schools in support of cultural fieldtrips. The LCC Grant Program is funded and overseen by the Massachusetts Cultural Council. Somerville LCC program grants are reviewed by SAC board members and local peers with expertise in the appropriate disciplines. Each year new panelists are convened to review new submissions.
Applicants must follow local guidelines for each new year.
2017 Applications deadline has passed--October 17th.
Applicants may call the office and speak with Rachel Strutt, Program Manager, who is available to assist with project design, facilitate collaboration between artists and organizations, and answer questions about the grant process, both before and after the Council makes its awards.
