Cultural Council

The Massachusetts Cultural Council is funded by appropriations from State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts. Funds are distributed to Local Cultural Councils to distribute to individuals and organizations in their communities. The Local Cultural Council Program is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation, supporting thousands of community-based projects in the arts, humanities and sciences annually. Yearly, the Winchendon Cultural Council meets in the fall to review and award grants to cultural programs town-wide. To apply for a grant, or to see a complete listing of grantees and dollar amounts awarded, please visit
