The Connecticut Office of the Arts announced the recipients of the FY21 Supporting Arts grants program

The Connecticut Office of the Arts is pleased to announce the recipients of the FY21 Supporting Arts grants program. We thank you for your interest in the program and send our best wishes for success! Congratulations!

The Supporting Arts grant program provides unrestricted funding to help support Connecticut's arts organizations and municipal arts departments as they pursue their mission. This type of grant is flexible rather than for specific projects or programs and gives the grantee the ability to use the funds where they are most needed.
One-hundred & sixty-nine (169) grants were awarded totaling $840,000. The grant awards exceeded available funding, therefore, all awards were proportionally adjusted to match available funds.
