This year, as it has every year for the past several years, the City of Hudson has $20,000 to award in grants of support to community events and festivals. Those seeking money from the City must make a formal application, and those awarded money from the City must submit a report when the event is over about its success.
The 2016 guidelines for applying for this funding have been available on the City of Hudson website since March 16, but this past Wednesday, April 6, Rick Rector, chair of the Common Council Arts, Entertainment & Tourism Committee, reported that no requests have so far been received. The deadline for submitting requests is April 30. To find out how the money has been awarded in past years, click here: 2015, 2014, 2013. COPYRIGHT 2016 CAROLE OSTERINK
