Thank you for your interest in the Holliston Newcomers Grant Program.
For over 30 years, the Holliston Newcomers Club has been committed to giving back to our community. In 2015, we were able to approve many grant requests thanks to our successful fundraising activities such as Craft Fair and the Gingerbread House Decorating Event.
The 2016 grant application is attached below. We will consider only those grants that are completed in full and that meet our funding criteria. Specifically, the grant application must demonstrate that the project would:
1. Have a significant impact on the community,
2. Provide needed services/projects to the community at large, and
3. Impact a large number of Holliston residents.
Please note, grant proposals which seek to redistribute funds or are to be used strictly operating costs will not be considered. All educational requests must be submitted through the designated school administrator and no individual educator requests will be reviewed.
Those with grant requests of $7,500 and under should complete sections I-V. Those with requests of greater than $7,500 should complete sections I-VI. If applicable, please submit quotes from two different vendors. Also, please indicate whether or not it will be possible to complete the project within the next calendar year if your request is only partially funded. All applicants will be notified of decisions in April 2016.
The deadline for grant requests is March 15, 2016. Requests received after the deadline will not be considered. Mail your completed forms to:

Holliston, MA 01746

forward to receiving your proposal.
