THINK BIG!
The Greenfield Local Cultural supports all forms of culture, including heritage and natural history, performing and visual arts, participatory and experimental events. If you are unsure whether your proposal fits within the scope of this grant, please contact us so we can help! Due to our deep commitment to the quality of life in Greenfield, our funding priorities are to support Greenfield-based artists, performers, and venues although others may apply. We are especially interested in proposals that include a public art component, that enhance the local economy or add value to existing initiatives, and that reach the broadest possible audience. Organizations or individuals that have already received funding for three years in a row will receive lower priority. The GLCC does not accept retroactive applications. Thanks for your interest!

Local Guidelines:

  • The deadline for submissions annually is October 15.
  • If you have questions or want to review your ideas before filing an application, please call GLCC Chair Caitlin von Schmidt at 413.376.5050 or email GreenfieldLCC@gmail.com.

If an applicant feels that a program will provide public benefit to more than one community, they may submit an application to more than one LCC. You can find a list of all the Local Cultural Councils here.
