Cultural Council Funding Proposals Extended to October 19th

Proposals for community-oriented arts, humanities, and science programs are due online by midnight Monday, October 19, 2022.

The Cultural Council of Northern Berkshire encourages organizations, schools, and individuals to apply for grants that support cultural activities in our communities. The Cultural Council of Northern Berkshire serves these eleven municipalities: Adams, Cheshire, Clarksburg, Florida, Hancock, Lanesborough, New Ashford, North Adams, Monroe, Savoy & Williamstown.

CCNB is part of a network of 329 Local Cultural Councils serving all 351 cities and towns in the Commonwealth. The LCC Program is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation, supporting thousands of community-based projects in the arts, sciences and humanities every year. The state legislature provides an annual appropriation to the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency, which then allocates funds to each community.

For local guidelines and complete information on the Cultural Council of Northern Berkshire, contact Cecilia Hirsch, Chair. The link to online applications and more information about the Local Cultural Council Program are available online at
