Grant Information

Funding for grant awards is made possible through three sources. Our local council receives funding from the State via the MA Cultural Council. The second source of funding is through the annual Town budget. Our Annual Town Meeting has consistently approved an appropriation to support our activities. 

Grant applicants must comply with our local guidelines, as well as state rules. Online applications for event funding must be submitted by October 15th and must also:

  • Take place in or originate in Westborough.
  • Have a specific, scheduled venue and a scheduled date.
  • Be open to the public and be so advertised.
  • Be sponsored by a non-profit organization or be a non-profit event.
  • Be handicapped-accessible.
  • If a field trip, be for the benefit of Westborough residents.
