Cultural Council

Mission Statement:

The Harvard Cultural Council's (HCC) purpose is to administer for the town the Massachusetts Cultural Council's Local Cultural Council (LCC) grant program, which is a reimbursement type grant. In doing so, the HCC promotes and supports the vitality of the cultural resources within the Harvard community.

The HCC gathers input from the community on a regular basis and develops funding priorities based on this feedback. Our last input survey was this past spring. Feedback from the survey helped to form the HCC’s  local priorities, which are:

  • A focus on teen & senior audiences (although projects for other audiences welcome)
  • A focus on performances, gatherings or local history-related programs (although other types of programs should also apply)
  • A focus on events/activities that take place in Harvard or serve Harvard residents
