For the upcoming June 5, 2020, Quick Grant application deadline, organizations are asked to submit grants for projects that address ways that they can best serve their community’s needs during the COVID-19 pandemic. Grant requests for non-COVID-19-response-related projects will not be accepted.
Project possibilities include, but are not limited to, moving an organization’s existing programs or exhibitions to an online/digital format; creating distance learning materials to support teachers and students; creating mobile tours for inclusion on CT Humanities’ ConnTours mobile app; displaying content in places where community members can access it despite social distancing; oral history or collecting projects to document the pandemic; etc.
While the maximum award per grant will remain the same ($4,999) and all grants will still require a minimum 1:1 match, we will allow up to 100% of CTH grant funds requested to be used to support staff salaries for project team members’ time spent working on the grant project.
Organizations with open Quick Grants delayed because of the pandemic will still be allowed to apply for funding for a second project, provided that they have an expectation they will complete the first project at a later time. Assessments will be made on a case-by-case basis, with guidance from CTH.
Please contact CTH Manager of Grants and Programs Scott Wands to discuss your project idea or if you have any questions.
