The Harvard Cultural Council is undertaking its triennial survey of the community and is seeking input from all Harvard residents.

The HCC is a local organization with the purpose of promoting and supporting the vitality of the cultural resources within our community through the Massachusetts Cultural Council's Local Cultural Council grant program. A wide variety of activities have been funded in the past, including community gatherings such as concerts, plays and festivals; arts, science and environmental education at the schools, the public library and the CoA; and projects focusing on local history and diversity, restoration and preservation.

Input gained from the survey will help the HCC focus future grant application processes to align with stated needs and feedback.

Surveys are available at the library, Town Hall, the General Store and the Center on the Common and can either be filled out and left at any of these four sites or mailed back to the HCC at P.O. Box 110, Harvard. Surveys will be available at these locations until May 15, which is also the deadline for survey return.

The Harvard Cultural Council is part of a network of 329 local cultural councils serving all 351 cities and towns in Massachusetts. The LCC Program is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation, supporting thousands of community-based projects in the arts, sciences and humanities every year.
