IMPORTANT, PLEASE NOTE: **All Easthampton Cultural Council grants that will be awarded for 2020 are direct grants and are no longer reimbursement based as in previous years.

2019 Grants from ECC are currently awarded on a reimbursement basis only.

Request for payment must be made within twelve months of notification of grant award. All successful applicants must properly credit the Easthampton Cultural Council and the Massachusetts Cultural Council for providing funds to the project in all press materials, posters, programs, announcements as well as paid advertising by referencing the Easthampton Cultural Council and putting the MCC logo on the press materials. Failure to do so will result in loss of funding. An example of proper credit would be: "This program is supported in part by a grant from the Easthampton Cultural Council a local agency funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency" as well as adding the logo to the materials.

Please send an image (jpg or png) and summary of project (or a press release) to eculturalcouncil@gmail.com as soon as possible so we can reference your event on our website and highlight the public component of your funded project.

Local Cultural Council grants

Our LCC grants currently work on a reimbursement basis only.  What that means is that you need to have already paid for budgeted goods and services before we are able to pay you. After you have already paid for the goods and services that went into your grant project, submit those receipts to us for reimbursement. Please know that we want to keep the reimbursement process simple and timely, but because our grant allocation monies pass through the state and the city, ECC must satisfy specific criteria before we can release your reimbursement. The state and local guidelines on reimbursement of grant funds are detailed and can require a little time and patience.
