Call for Grant Applicants – Application period ends Oct. 17


The Otis Cultural Council seeks applicants for grants to fund programs for town residents of all ages.  We look for programs that provide cultural access, education, and diversity in the arts, humanities, and interpretive sciences. We strongly support projects that promote communication and community-building.


Applicants can be artists, teachers, historians or any Massachusetts resident with a proposal that fits our mission. The application period is Sept. 1 through October 17, 2022. Our committee will review all applications in November and notify grantees by January. Applications must be made online through the Massachusetts Cultural Council software. Complete information about the application process is available through this link:

Step 4 on that page will allow you access to the application system where you need to set up a user account.  There are also tutorials to help you.


We look forward to reading your interesting and creative ideas for programs. If you have questions about the software registration, feel free to contact Carole Burke at or 516-232-5705.  The council email is culturalco.otis Our webpage is found at
