LCC Program Training
To be an effective LCC member, it is important to know the requirements and processes used to
administer the grant cycle. An online training course and video tutorials are available to help teach you
the ins and outs of the LCC Program.
LCC Basics Training
The best place to get an introduction to the LCC Program is through the LCC Online Basics Training. All
new members are required to take the training within the first three months of their service. The training
will inform you about the grant cycle timeline, the types of grants that can be approved, what kinds of
projects are eligible and how to review a grant application. You’ll also learn about how your council
works, how meetings are conducted, how your council’s finances are organized, and the role of community
input in the work of your council. The training will provide you with the tools you need to be a part of
this exciting program, and serves as your orientation to the local cultural council program.
