The Fitchburg Cultural Alliance Support Grant Program

The Fitchburg Cultural Alliance started a new grant program in 2019 to support our member organizations, artists, artist groups, and businesses to promote our mission and the Fitchburg Community. Applicants may apply for funds from $100 up to $1000 to implement a project. We are proud to announce the continuation of this program for the 2022 Grant Cycle.

Our Mission...

To promote excellence, access, education, and diversity in the arts and humanities in order to improve the quality of life and economic vitality for Fitchburg residents and surrounding communities.
