The AFCC Grant Program provides cash awards in support of the artistic and cultural activities of local organizations and individuals. Grant projects should support the broadest goals of the Arts Foundation in supporting the creative economy on Cape Cod and contributing to character and heritage of the region. The next round of funding will begin August 14, 2017.  Please review the AFCC Grant Guidelines before applying or calling.



Please submit a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) following the  the guidelines specified below. Please be  concise in your LOI; think strategically about how to  describe your project.  The Committee may request additional information or clarification before making a recommendation.


In 250 words please include the following:

  • Brief description of your organization and its mission
  • Focus of your project—the who, what, where, when, why
  • An estimate of how much you will be requesting
  • Whether or not this project has been previously funded by the AFCC and if so, when.



Letters of Inquiry will be accepted from August 14 – September 29, 2017.

Those invited to submit a full application will be notified during the first week of October, with applications due on October 31. The Grants Review Committee will consider the proposals during the month following the deadline.
