Connecticut Humanities believes that public health and safety are top priorities. With the growing prevalence of COVID-19, or Coronavirus, in Connecticut, we are monitoring both federal and state guidance on how to minimize exposure to and spread of the virus on a daily basis. The health and peace of mind of our staff, board, partners, grantees, and program participants will guide our decision-making in the coming weeks.
We will provide any program-specific updates here and on relevant pages in the coming days. We recommend that you periodically visit cthumanities.org for the latest updates.
For now we ask our partners and grantees who host activities and events in their venues to monitor the situation in their own communities, follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the State of Connecticut’s website for their recommendations, use their discretion in determining if events should be rescheduled or cancelled, and keep Connecticut Humanities staff informed as they work towards decisions in the interest of keeping their communities safe. If you cancel or postpone an event you have listed on our website, please update it accordingly. For the foreseeable future, before attending any events listed on our website, we recommend you contact the host organization for a status update.
The April 3 grant deadline has been extended to April 17 to allow applicants more time to prepare their applications. Read the important information found here.
Please direct any programming questions or feedback to Connecticut Humanities staff; we’re here to help.
