This Cultural Council of Northern Berkshire serves 11 municipalities in northern Berkshire county and gives PRIORITY to artists and projects originating in these towns and cities including: Adams, Cheshire, Clarksburg, Florida, Hancock, Lanesboro, Monroe, New Ashford, North Adams, Savoy, and Williamstown.

Individuals, community groups, and cultural organizations are all eligible to apply for a project grant that benefits our communities.

If you’re with a school, contact your principal about applying for a grant. Only one grant per school is accepted and all requests must be submitted on one application. Every school is eligible to receive funds so don’t miss out on this opportunity! Please review the school guidelines before submitting an application.

This is our sixth year of awarding a grant to an individual artist of up to $1,000. These are unrestricted funds that support ongoing work.
