The mission of the Natick Cultural Council is to promote excellence, education, and diversity in the arts, humanities and interpretative sciences to improve the quality of life for Natick residents. The Council awards grants based on the cultural needs of the community, as assessed by Council members with input from the community.

The grants program operates under the umbrella of the Mass Cultural Council, which funds and manages a network of 329 Local Cultural Councils (LCCs) across the state, representing every city and town in the Commonwealth. Each council awards money based on individual community cultural needs, assessed and set by LCC members. Applicants apply directly to local councils.
