2021 Nonprofit Connecticut Cultural Census Data

Through the CT Cultural Fund, CT Humanities has awarded $16M in operating support grants to 624 arts and humanities organizations across Connecticut. An additional $3M has been awarded to statewide-focused partners that will work to strengthen and sustain these organizations, make digital resources more accessible to and representative of our communities, and connect our students and educators to museums, civics programming, and cultural events.

Below you will find links to data stories we have created to share more about the cultural, humanities, and arts sector in Connecticut and to give a sense of how the pandemic has affected our state. Follow this link for Organizational Comparison Data Sheets.

Based on information provided by the 624 grantees as part of our 2021 CT Cultural Census, these data stories serve as a snapshot of our last two years. CT Humanities will continue to collect, analyze, and report data over the next two years and hope to demonstrate our path to recovery, especially as we plant the seeds for celebrating America’s 250th in 2026!

Our work on the CT Cultural Fund would not be possible without the support of the Connecticut General Assembly in collaboration of the CT Office of the Arts. Our public-private partnership has been effective and efficient and enthusiastically received by our grantees and their communities.
