The Holliston Cultural Council is a local branch of the Massachusetts Cultural Council. The Local Cultural Council (LCC) program is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation supporting thousands of community-based projects associated with the arts, humanities and sciences annually. Each year the Holliston Cultural Council awards grants for programs benefitting town residents. The program promotes the availability of rich cultural experiences for every Holliston resident.

Based upon the highly successful response to our most recent Public Survey, we have established our priorities for this coming year to include artists who will provide family oriented entertainment, musical and vocal presentations, poetry, guest speakers, and classical music concerts.

We prefer to support local Holliston artists and local entertainment venues.

The Massachusetts Cultural Council has created a new online application process.  Individuals interested in applying for grants from the Holliston Cultural Council can go to the website , click on Applicants and follow the directions.
