Local Cultural Councils (LCCs) will send preliminary notification to all applicants shortly after they vote on grants. Disapproved applicants are notified first to allow for the reconsideration process. Approved applicants generally receive letters from LCCs in December or January. Final approval from the state is given in March/April and money is available to reimburse applicants in April. Please note that funds may be transferred to local accounts before April in some communities.
